Google today has reveled an update to its notes/lists app Keep. The update adds two notable features and is rolling out now to the Keep web client and Android app. With the update, the Android app is bumped to version 3.1. With it, the update brings recurring reminders and labels to both the web and mobile.

The first addition, recurring reminders, allows users to set a reminder and have it appear every so often. At the bottom of a note, users can choose to have it appear daily, weekly, monthly, yearly, or on a specific customized schedule.

Next, the update also brings support for labels to Google Keep. This feature allows users to apply labels to notes and later refine results to only view files with a specific label attached. Users can attach more than one label to a note, and the labels all sync back to the web client for Google Keep, as well.

Finally, Google also today has added the ability to export notes from the web client for Keep directly into Google Docs. Docs offers more advanced editing options which could help users turn simple ideas they put into Keep into something more sophisticated.

The update is rolling out to Google Keep on Android and on the web now. As usual, the Android update is staged so it may take a few days to hit your device.
