Google will end support for the Google Keep Chrome app in February 2021. The app will move to Google Keep on the web, where it can still be accessed.

Access to Keep on the Chrome OS lock screen will also not be available.

Users can install a shortcut that opens Keep on the Chrome browser by going to Google Keep, clicking Star and renaming the bookmark or changing the location of the bookmark folder. After doing this, users should click Done.

Existing users who have Chrome 86 or newer versions of the browser installed can easily complete the migration process to Google Keep in the browser. Keep Chrome on desktop will be replaced by a shortcut launcher, which will allow users to launch the Google Keep page by clicking the icon on the desktop.
Google Keep has also released a new icon. It is a similar shade to the previous one, but has a full version of a light bulb. The dog-eared corner of the icon has been moved from the lower right to the upper right. The new icon has been rolled out for the web, but is not yet visible to mobile apps.
