Google Chrome may soon add local clipboard sharing

Chrome Story found a code change request in Chromium Gerrit requesting the "feature flag for the shared clipboard feature." Specifically, enabling the receiving device to process the shared clipboard, that is, by receiving a clipboard notification to be shared, to enable the receiver device to process the shared clipboard function, and simultaneously enabling the shared clipboard to be processed, that is, by displaying the user sharing The clipboard's list of available devices handles the shared clipboard feature.

Based on these judgments, clipboard data is not automatically shared on all devices at any time. Instead, the user must manually select the recipient. It remains to be seen whether this feature will achieve some automation, but it is safe to assume that sharing is intentionally restricted to avoid privacy issues. This work can be built on top of OneChrome, another Chromium Gerrit submission that seems to mimic Apple's Continuity feature. It should allow Chrome and Android devices to interact more seamlessly, so users can make calls directly or dynamically share WiFi credentials via Chrome. While some of the OneChrome skills seem to be specific to ChromeOS and Android, the shared clipboard flag seems to be platform-independent.

Regardless, although these options have not yet entered Google's browser, they are likely to appear first in the Chrome Canary Developer Preview, which works on all major desktop and Android devices. Now, the latest version of Chrome Canary does introduce these two logos. This description confirms that clipboard sharing is intended for all major computing platforms, including Macs,Windows, Linux, Chrome OS and Android are all available, but iOS is not supported. So far, nothing happens when you activate the tag, but this further proves that Google is developing this feature.
