    Google Keep is famous for its bright colors as a way to differentiate the variety of content inserted there . As the screenshot below, you can see that the garish tones have been replaced by something more subtle, in line with the user’s wallpaper, although the color feature still remains.

    The bottom bar, the search box, background and buttons, squares with rounded edges, must have changes not only in design but also in color. The shading and other details of the current version should be replaced with a flatter, cleaner look. For now, it is not clear whether the interior of the notes will also be affected by the dynamic coloring, but it is very likely that this will happen.
