The Cloud Clipboard functionality in Windows 10 was launched back in 2018, which is a productivity feature to let users to copy-and-paste contents from one PC to another if they’re having the same Microsoft account logged in.

While this is limited to just PCs and laptops since then, the maker is now trailing to support the Android smartphones, as per Techradar report. This project has been announced in 2018 itself but was halted for some reasons. This needs the users to be using SwiftKey keyboard on their Android devices, which Microsoft has acquired earlier.

The new support is based on the Cloud Clipboard service of Microsoft, where users will be available to copy content like texts and images in their Windows 10 desktop/laptop and paste them in their smartphones. This happens in vice versa too. This could be rolled out in the next Windows 10 update, and also in SwiftKey update.
