Turns out Inbox isn’t the only app Google had updates for today. The company announced a few new features for Keep – its note-taking app – that should help make a bit more sense of your reminders and tasks.

First up, a new Chrome extension allows you to add a link to save directly in Keep, along with some information about the site. Alternatively, you could select some text to save it directly into a note as well.

There’s an Android analog too: you can now use the ‘Share via’ function in Chrome (or other apps) to save information directly to Keep.

Finally, you can now use hashtags to create labels. While it might look a little sloppier than the old implementation, it’s a whole lot easier.

Previously, you’d have to use the left hand menu bar from your list of notes to create a new label, which isn’t very useful when you’re in the middle of writing a note. I basically have never used labels for this reason, but the new implementation makes that likely to change.

The updates are rolling out to the Play Store and iOS now, and you can download the Chrome extension here.
