Google Keep has been my note-taking app for some time now. It’s simple, effective, and works with both web browsers and mobile devices. With Google Keep, I can save quick thoughts, add lists, add images, format text, pin notes to the top, and even collaborate with notes.
That’s right, my friends, you can collaborate with notes in Google Keep. Because of this, you could create a project, to-do list, a shopping list, or just about anything you need, share it with others, and then they can then add, remove, or edit any entry in the note.
Here’s the thing: First and foremost, you share on a note-by-note basis, so it’s not global.
Second, you should be wise about who you share with. You don’t want to share a Google Keep note that might contain important information that you can’t trust with just anyone. So, share those notes wisely and they will serve your purpose well.
Share Google Keep notes can be used for business or personal purposes. Keep a running chore list or a list of all the vinyl albums you own. The sky’s the limit with how you can use Google Keep.

How to collaborate on Google Keep lists and why you should
But what about that sharing? Let’s get to it now.
The only things you need are a valid Google account and any modern web browser. That’s it. Time to share.
How to remove collaborators from a note
A note with associated collaborators will be apparent because you’ll see the collaborator’s profile icon in the bottom right of the note. If you ever need to remove a collaborator, simply click the profile icon, which will open the same sharing settings popup you saw earlier. Click the X associated with the collaborator to remove them.
And that’s all there is to sharing and collaborating with Google Keep notes. This feature is very basic but it can really make a difference when you have a note that needs to be shared and edited by others.
