Google Keep has been updated with the ability to recognize drawings, as first spotted by Android Police. The note-taking app allows users to take photos, make color-coded lists, and add voice notes much like Evernote and the recently updated Notes app on iOS. Both of those apps already have drawing recognition, so it was only a matter of time before Google added it to its own offering.

To access the drawing feature in Google Keep, tap the pen icon on the Keep home screen (it's also available on the widget). There are three pen styles and 28 different colors to choose from. While the drawing options aren't exactly expansive, the update should be a nice addition for users of devices with styluses like the Galaxy Note. The update is currently rolling out to users through Google Play, but if you need it now, you can grab it from the APK mirror immediately.
