After seeing itself in the code, Microsoft has decided to bring the shared clipboard to your virtual keyboard, SwiftKey. With the latest version of the app, currently in beta, Items copied from Windows 10 can be received on mobile, also the other way around. The function is already available and can be activated very easily.

Microsoft has been narrowing the gap between Windows and Android by dint of not only offering a synchronization tool between both platforms, but little by little it was integrating the mobile system into the desktop one. There he is Android app startup in Windows 11, for instance; apart from the large amount of Microsoft Android Apps Bridging Computers. One of them is SwiftKey, which has just introduced a very cool feature: the shared clipboard. We have tested it.
