OnePlus Notes is helpful as long as you do not want to switch to its alternatives such as Google Keep, Notion, etc. Although it’s useful for taking notes, there’s no cloud backup option. So, if you want to access your notes on a PC or another device, you would end up scratching your head. Neither, the OnePlus Notes app has the export option. However, there’s a way to transfer OnePlus Notes to Google Keep. We’ll tell you all the steps in this article.
Google Keep is probably the best app for taking notes. As soon as you add a note, it quickly uploads to the cloud and thus even if you lose your device, all your notes are safe. But with OnePlus Notes, this is hardly possible. You’ll have to do a lot of work. I also use Google Keep to take notes and see them later on my PC.
