Now copying content is easier with Google Chrome’s new feature

According to a Chromium Gerrit, a new Google Chrome feature is under the working process. This new feature of Chrome will let the users of different operating systems copy and paste data across multiple platforms.

There is a variety of operating systems in the market ranging from Linux, macOS, Android, and Windows as well. Google Chrome is a browser that is available on most platforms but sometimes it is difficult to copy content from one operating system and to paste it on the other platform. This new feature enables users to copy and paste content from one device to another without worrying about the type of platforms. This feature will provide users of Google Chrome a shared clipboard that can be accessed easily on all devices consisting of Windows, Linux, macOS, and Android.

This shared clipboard feature already exists on Windows 10 but the core purpose behind the launch of this feature among all platforms is to provide a center particle of Google Chrome that unites all these platforms with the help of the browser.

Chrome Story first spotted the post on details regarding the workings of this new feature. According to the Chromium Gerrit’s post, you need to enable the receiver device to handle the shared clipboard feature with the help of notification to receive the clipboard to share. After enabling the receiver side, you need to enable the shared clipboard feature signals by displaying a list of potential user devices available to share the clipboard.


After making the shared clipboard live Chrome users can easily copy content from one device and share the content on the browser of the other device with the same Google account information as of the sender. After this, the receiving device will show a notification about the availability of shared clipboard data.

We are still waiting for the release date of this new feature but it is expected to launch more early in Google Chrome Canary and later for the public testing.
