Google Assistant (Express) shopping list adopts a new interface with images and better swipe actions

Google Assistant's shopping list is probably one of the most loathed features of the service. Google didn't do it any favors when it forced users to adopt the new web-based Express interface instead of having the list in Keep, and the hatred has kept spewing since then. I'm sure some of you like it, some are indifferent to it, others use it because they have to, and others wouldn't touch it with a ten-foot pole. Today's news won't convince the latter to give it a go, but if you belong to the first three categories, there's a new interface to feast your eyes and fingers on.

Google Keep now lets you indent items in lists

For the better part of two years, Google Keep has been my main list and note app. I use it constantly with my husband to keep track of our grocery shopping and things that need to be done around the house, and I also list some of my gym routines on it plus countless other things. The issue, however, is that lists were a single-indent affair until now, making it very tedious to organize sub-items. But things are changing as Keep has just rolled out indentation support on both mobile (Android, iOS) and web.

Google Keep for Android Wear gets a new UI, removes shortcut to open a note on your phone

Google Keep for Android Wear has made a significant jump from version 2.0.08 to 4.1.091. Along with this jump comes a new design that makes note actions easier to get to, though it does remove one neat feature that I often used.

To start, it's not clear to us whether this is the first proper Android Wear 2.0 APK for Keep or not. From the changelog's wording, it seems like the app is just now being directly distributed on the Play Store to Wear watches instead of the APK coming from the Keep app on your phone - the fact that it's now become compatible with iOS lends credence to that, but again, we're not 100% sure.

Update Notes for YouTube Music, Google Fit, Gboard, Keep, Calendar, and many more (Feb 4, 2018)

Every week, I examine somewhere in the neighborhood of a hundred app updates while looking for changes. The most interesting things turn into APK Teardowns or Download posts. Many of the remaining updates are unremarkable, amounting to a few bug fixes, routine updates to libraries, or even just pixel-level adjustments to layouts and images. However, there are usually a few updates that land somewhere in between. I don't want to spam readers with dozens of short posts, but I hate to ignore things that people might want to know about, so I'm going to wrap up the leftovers for a little weekend reading and call it Update Notes.

[Update: New APK fixes crash] Google Keep 3.4.901 rolls auto-numbered lists, but the feature is super buggy now

A few days ago, Google Keep 3.4.901 rolled out and the only change we spotted were 4 new colors for notes. However, the official changelog was released yesterday and it contained another interesting tidbit: auto-numbered lists in text notes.

When it works, the feature does what's intended. You type "1. something" and when you hit Enter, the "2. " is automatically generated, and so on. If you go back to delete some characters, you'll notice that two backspaces are required after the period, presumably to prevent you from messing with the numbering of the list. Here's a video of it in action:

Google Keep adds 4 new note colors [APK Download]

Call this a teaser or a weird rollout that hit one platform before another... or just typical Google behavior. Google Keep is showing users 4 new possible color options for notes, for a total of 12, but only on the desktop version. If you're using Keep on Android, even if you're on the latest v3.4.881, you get none of these and you still only see 8 colors.

The 4 new colors are dark blue, purple, pink, and some sort of light brown.

Google Keep 3.4.803 gets undo and redo controls [APK Download]

For the past year, every note I've had to make with my husband and every list we've had to write has been saved in Google Keep. The app is easy to use and powerful enough to take care of all of our organization needs, but the feature that we have missed in our daily use is an undo/redo functionality. It's a pretty basic one and the first time we looked for it and realized it wasn't there, we were quite dumbfounded. The convenience of not having to manually undo/redo something is very important, but it's even more crucial when you inadvertently delete something you shouldn't have.

Google Assistant's new shopping list is live, here's how it works

When Google Assistant was first introduced, you could ask it to add items to your personal shopping list. This would create a note called 'Google Assistant shopping list' in Google Keep, and you could easily manage your list from the Keep app (or web app). It makes sense that your shopping list would be in the same app as your notes, right?

Apparently not to Google, because two days ago, a support article was updated to say the shopping list is moving out of Keep. Why? Because the new list ties into Google Express, so you can order what you need in fewer steps.

Google Assistant's shopping list is moving out of Keep and into the Home app on April 10

I love having the Google Assistant shopping list in Keep. It means that I can access it whenever I want on the phone and the web, add items to it, and share it with my fiancé while we're in the process of furnishing our apartment. It also means that we don't have to worry about using another app: everything we need is organized in Keep and so is our shopping list.

But that's about to change soon, very soon, like this-Monday soon. A new notice is showing up for users when they open up their Google Assistant Shopping List in Keep telling them that changes are afoot.
