An update to Google Keep has started rolling out this evening with a handful of notable enhancements. Announced in a post on the official Android blog, today’s update adds the ability to collaborate on notes such as grocery lists and watch items get checked off in real-time. So when someone adds something to a list, you’ll instantly see it on your device, as well.

Next time you create a list, share it on Keep and watch as items get checked off in real-time! No need for text messages back and forth—get things done together, quicker.

In addition to real-time collaboration, today’s Keep update also improves the app’s search capabilities. You can now filter notes by the color you assigned to them, as well as things like whether they’re shared with others, whether they have images or audio within, or if they have a reminder associated with them.

The Google Keep update is rolling out to Android devices now via the Play Store. It is a staged rollout, however, so it may take a few days for it to hit your device. In the mean time, the real-time collaboration features are already available on the web and Chrome versions of Keep.
