In 2021, Google-branded services grouped under Google One or Google Workspace. The former is Google’s premium service for customers who want more Google Drive cloud storage (plus in-app capabilities like photo editing tools), while the latter is for professionals and enterprises of all kinds. Google Keep is part of Workspace, and its Android app is finally advertising that.
9to5Google noticed that updating Google Keep adds a Google Workspace logo to the app’s splash screen. We’ve confirmed seeing the same behavior on this release, which was not present previously. Docs, Slides, Drive, and Sheets have Workspace branding.
Google’s ongoing merging of Meet and Duo is a nice example of an attempt to move a consumer-focused service (Duo) under the enterprise-focused Workspace umbrella. Only Google Calendar, Tasks, and Chat remain Workspace holdouts after Keep’s update.
Google Calendar, Google Chat, and Google Tasks are the ones that haven’t changed yet. More and more cross-service integrations are being added to the to-do client, and Calendar is another app that puts users first, especially on Android.
Jamboard and Voice, which are officially called “add-ons” to Workspace, would technically be eligible.
