Google Keep today was updated with a feature that will bring it closer in feature capability to the more powerful note taking applications on the market. Today’s update adds long-awaited support for pinned notes (via Android Police).

Much like a lot of Google Keep, the process to pin a note is super intuitive. Simply long press and tap the new pin icon that’s located at the top of the screen. Alternatively, from the note itself, you can tap the same pin icon. Once the note is pinned, you’ll see a separate pinned section at the top of the main interface of Google Keep .

Google has worked to ensure that Keep remains very simple and easy to use, while also slowly adding new features at a slow pace. Over the summer, Google Keep added searchable auto-created topics, while the web version of the note-taking service also got a major interface lift.

The latest version of Google Keep is available on the Play Store now. Let us know if you spot anything else that’s new down in the comments.
