With this move, Google is looking to further unify its diverse app ecosystem. Users will not have to do anything to get the synchronisation to run.

Google has been working on simplifying its software ecosystem in recent years. This included the discontinuation of Google Play Music and Podcasts in favor of YouTube Music. Now, the company is further unifying its services by replacing lists and notes in Google Assistant. In case you’re not using it in your daily life, Keep is a fairly advanced note manager that is free and integrated into your Google account. The great thing is that it syncs to the cloud with your account, giving you access to your notes from anywhere.
Google Keep allows you to create to-do lists, all kinds of notes, videos, audio, links, and more. For me, it’s a must-have for work and everyday use, both at home and in the workplace.
The transfer is automatic, although you can force it if you wish
Previously, users could ask Google Assistant to create shopping lists or notes that were stored in the Google Assistant app. While it was possible to access these lists and notes via a web browser, these pages did not have an optimal appearance on Android devices. Now, Google is automatically importing these lists and notes into the Keep service, which has native apps for both Android and iOS.
Google has announced that lists and notes from Google Assistant will be moved to Google Keep without any user intervention. However, it’s worth mentioning that some lists will not be transferred automatically to Google Keep. These include family notes created through smart displays and lists with exceptional features, such as titles longer than 999 characters, notes longer than 19,999 characters, lists with more than 999 items, or lists that contain items longer than 999 characters. Data transfer should be quick, according to Google:
The transfer should take a few minutes. However, for some users, it may take a few hours. All notes or lists will be visible in Google Keep as soon as they are transferred.
For these cases, users will have access through Google Takeout, a platform that essentially centralizes all the information Google has about you, and they can export all the data. This service will be available until May 1, 2024.
