Microsoft to enable Android users to sync clipboard items from PC

Microsoft to enable Android users to sync clipboard items from PC
Microsoft recently announced the Windows 10 October 2018 Update, which contains a nifty feature called “Cloud Clipboard” that allows users to sync clipboard items across devices. More importantly, this feature is now being brought to mobile devices so that you can copy and paste text and images saved in the history box on your phone.

The first app to offer this functionality is SwiftKey for Android. The folks over at WindowsCentral discovered a popup that appears server-side in the Windows 10 October 2018 Update RTM. This popup shows up when you enable sync in Cloud Clipboards settings and says that you should “Get an app to sync clipboard items to your phone.”

The link in the popup redirects users to a coming soon page where they are told to download the SwiftKey Beta for Android, which is probably the first version that will get the feature. Unfortunately, there's no mention of a similar implementation on iOS at the moment.

Keep in mind that the feature is not yet available in the SwiftKey Beta for Android, but if you want to be among the first to check it out, you might as well download it now.
