Google Keep is a versatile app. This author loves it. It takes notes and creates lists and you can use it to create reminders. The background colors can be changed, and if you’re creating a list, you can even add a checkbox that removes a task from the list when it’s completed. In a Google Workspace blog post Google reveals that you can now drag and drop photos from the Keep app into other apps. The feature is available for Android tablets and Pixel phones including the Pixel 6 series.
One of the first steps required to set up a split screen with Keep and Android Messages
Drag and drop is done in split screen mode. Let us show you how it is done using Google Messages. Open Google Keep and Side by Side Messages in split screen mode. At this point, tap and hold the image in Keep until it “pops up,” then move the image around in the Messages app.
Here’s how you can do it step by step. Open the Keep app and then the Google Messages app. Use gestures to bring up recent apps and move the Keep app in the middle of the screen until the Keep icon appears at the top of the screen. Tap on it and you will see a box with three options: App Information, Split Top, and Pause App. Click on Split at the top. Open the Messages app and you have a split screen with Keep at the top and Messages at the bottom.
Now switch the phone to landscape mode and the apps will be displayed side by side. Long press on the image in the Keep app and as mentioned, it will appear. Slide the photo into the Messages app and you can send it to the recipient. You can also drag photos in google notes
To exit split screen mode, tap the line between the two apps and move it all the way up or down the screen. I hope you find this feature useful. If you have any questions about how this feature works, drop a line in the comments section below!
