Create or edit notes on your phone

You can ask your Google Assistant to start a note for you.

Set a default note service

Let your Google Assistant create and edit notes in a service, like Google Keep.

  1. On your Android phone or tablet, open the Google Assistant app Assistant (iOS)
  2. At the top right, tap your profile image or initial and then Services and then Notes & Lists.
  3. Tap a service to set it as your default.
  4. To confirm, tap Continue.

Any new notes created with your Google Assistant will be visible on your default note service. Any notes you created with your Google Assistant before you set a default note service, won’t be available on that service.

Important: If you choose a third-party provider app as your default, that provider’s app's privacy policy applies.

  1. Say "Ok Google" or tap and hold the Home button to talk to your Assistant.
  2. Say a command. For example:
    • "Take a note"

Fix issues with notes

Where are my old notes?

Notes you created with your Google Assistant before connecting to a notes service, like Keep, aren’t migrated. Your Assistant will show you an aggregated view of notes created from both your Assistant and your note service.

If you have notes in both the Assistant and your notes service with the same name, your Assistant will start adding items to the note created in your notes service.

Access notes you created with your Google Assistant

When you set a notes service as your default app, your Assistant shows you notes from both the note app and notes you created with your Google Assistant. To edit your Google Assistant notes:

  1. Open the Google Assistant app Assistant (iOS).
  2. At the top right, tap your profile image or initial and then Services and then Notes & Lists.
