Share notes between iPhone and Android and PCs

How can you share notes between iPhone and Android and PCs? Google Keep allows you to save a note on one device and retrieve from any other device. Many people use multiple devices while doing their daily work. You may have an iPhone, an Android phone, and a PC (Windows or iOS) where you do your work. Add a note to Google Keep on one of these devices and you can see it, edit it, and add more notes on any other device.

Install Google Keep on all your devices and whatever is saved on one will show up on all the others. Google Keep stores the notes in a central cloud which makes the notes retrievable from anywhere – providing you have an internet connection. When using Keep, you must be connected to the internet to retrieve notes, make changes, add new notes, etc.

6. How do I see shared notes on my other devices?

As long as you’re signed in to the same Google account on all your devices (iPhone, Android, PC), any changes made to a shared note on one device will automatically sync and reflect on the others.

7. Is there a limit to how many people I can share a note with?

Google doesn’t specify a limit on the number of collaborators for a note. However, it’s generally recommended to keep the number manageable for clear communication and avoiding confusion.

If you shared a note with someone unintended, you can revoke their access immediately. Open the note, tap “Collaborator,” select the wrong person, and tap “Remove.”
