Google Keep now shares images with other apps using drop and drag; here’s how to do it!

Written by admin
Google Keep is quite a versatile app. This writer loves it. It takes notes, makes lists, and you can use it to create reminders. The background colors can be changed and when creating a list you can even add a checkbox that removes a task on the list when it is completed. In a Google Workspace blog post, Google reveals that you can now drag and drop images from your Keep app to other apps. The feature is available for Android tablets and Pixel handsets, including the Pixel 6 series.
To make sure you have the drag and drop version of Google Keep, go to SettingsappsView all xxx apps Keeping NotesApp information† At the bottom of the page you will see the version number. You want version number or later to be displayed. If you don’t have the app or if the version number is older, you can install the latest version of Google Keep from the Play Store by tap this link

The drag and drop is done in split screen mode. Let’s show you how to do this with Google Messages. Open Google Keep and Messages side by side in split screen mode. At that point, long-press the image in Keep until it “pops out” and then slide the image into the Messages app.

Here’s how to do it step by step. Open the Keep app and then open the Google Messages app. Gestures into recent apps and slide the Keep app halfway up the screen until the Keep icon appears at the very top of the screen. Tap it and you’ll see a box with three options: App Info, Split Top, and Pause App. Tap Split top. Open the Messages app and you’ll have a split screen with Keep at the top and Messages at the bottom.

Now put the phone in landscape mode and the apps will be side by side. Long press the image in the Keep app and it will pop out as we said before. Slide the image into the Messages app and you can send it to a recipient. You can also drag images go inside Google Keep.

To exit split screen mode, press the line that separates the two apps and move it all the way to the top or bottom of the screen. I hope you find this feature useful. If you have any questions about how this feature works, drop a line in the comment section below!
