Sync Notes Apps with Google Assistant
Just to make things clear, Google Assistant already had a notes-creating capability. But it only allowed the creation, edit, and modification of notes within its capacity. Now with the latest update, you could easily sync your favorite notes across the Assistant app. Moreover, whatever notes you write via the Assistant app, the same will automatically be synced over to your preferred notes app as well.
Currently, the supported notes apps are Any.do, AnyList, Bring Shopping Lists and Google’s own Keep app. With that said, here are the steps to integrate and sync your favorite notes apps with Google Assistant (which recently has got an Ambient Mode as well).
Steps to Integrate Notes Apps
- Open the Google Assistant app by your preferred method of choice.
- Tap on the Explore icon present at the bottom right.
- Next, tap on your Avatar and select Settings from the menu.
- Go to the Services tab and look for the Notes & Lists app section.
- Select your desired notes app from the list. In this guide, we will be choosing the Google Keep app.
- Select that app and tap Continue in the dialog box that appears.
That’s it. You have successfully integrated and synced your favorite notes app with Google Assistant. Now that you have chosen Google Keep (of which here are some useful tips) as your preferred note-taking app, all your notes will be saved inside the Keep app. You could easily view them via Google Assistant or that notes app. But, in the future, if you chose a different notes app, your earlier notes will no longer be accessible via Assistant. But they aren’t lost or deleted, you could still access them via your previous note-taking app. With that said, let’s now have a look at the steps to effectively manage these notes.
