Google Keep now lets you drag and drop images to other apps

The recent resurgence of tablets and other devices with large screens has made Google take a keen eye on this sector, introducing updates to their apps to make them more intuitive to use on these big screens and to also facilitate multitasking.

The latest update comes to Google Keep, which now allows you to drag an image from another Google app like Gmail or Google Docs, and it will be pasted automatically. To get started, have Google Keep open alongside Gmail or another Google app side by side in split-screen mode.

Whether your image is on Gmail or Google Keep, long press on it until it pops out. Then drag it over to the other application. A copy of the image with the right dimensions will be saved on the second app.

To use the drag and drop feature, ensure your version of Google Keep on Android is or later. You also need to make sure that cookies and JavaScript are turned on for the feature to work properly

However, note that the drag and drop feature currently does not support apps that are not developed by Google. Therefore, you will only be able to use the feature with Google Messages, Google Docs, Google Drive etc. Android Police think this has to do with Google not providing some APIs to third-party app developers, therefore it might take a while before you can use the feature with the likes of WhatsApp and Telegram where it will definitely be more useful to more people.

The application is not restricted to Android, you can also get access to it on Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer 11, Microsoft Edge, Safari and a few other browsers. However, with these other browsers, you might not be able to use all the features in Google Keep.
