Despite rivalry, Google puts another app on the Apple Watch
Apple and Google have been bickering at each other worse than ever in the last few years. Things took a really ugly turn about two years ago when Google pulled its wearable apps for the Apple Watch, but not it looks like the search giant wants a slice of the pie for itself.

Today, an important app is making a comeback on the Apple Watch – Google Keep. The iOS app has been recently updated with Apple Watch support, which means those who own the wearable device can start using it right away as long as they have the latest version of Google Keep installed on their iPhones.

The official changelog doesn't mention any other new feature, but it does say that the update should also introduce some bug fixes and performance improvements.

With Google Keep, you can capture, edit, share, and collaborate on notes on any device while on the move. It makes it so much easier to add notes, lists, photos, and audio on the fly, but the app also allows users to organize their notes with labels and colors.

It's even got a recording feature that enables the app to automatically transcribe a voice memo. Moreover, Google Keep offers a special ability that allows users to find a certain note through search using the text from an image.

I think Google should fix first the embarrassing bug of Keep on its own Wear OS. It's been years now, Google is still sending updates minimally once or twice per month and the bug still persists. How is this even possible?

What bug are you referring to? I use Keep on WearOS and haven't come across any bugs.

Rivalry is only between fanboys.
