Is ‘Ancient Copy-Paste couple’ breaking up? Google is developing a new feature called “Copyless Paste” !
Yeah, you heard it right. Google is always up to something innovative and never ran out of ideas to blow our minds. Yet another feature is coming up called ‘Copyless Paste’. Well it sounds strange, no? I mean, How would device know what to copy? You can’t just paste something out of blue.
Google has created first code for this ‘Copyless Paste’ and introduced in the Chrome app running on Android OS. It takes data from the Chrome usage and use it to improve user experience. This promising feature can be enabled from Chrome canary Android in chrome://flags, although it isn’t designed to work with incognito mode in Chrome canary for Android. Turning it on might not do anything, a report in VentureBeat said.
The flag’s description clears it all about how that data and this feature can be a go to thing for us,
“If you looked at a restaurant website and switched to the Maps app, the keyboard would offer the name of that restaurant as a suggestion to enter into the search bar,” it says. Data is only stored locally and never sent to Google.
Basically you won’t have to worry about typing some mandatory and useful things like filling addresses and stuff in forms.
Google started working on this in February and presumably it will be in our phone’s Chrome in next few months according to a report, although it will work only in high end devices Google hasn’t commented anything on this.
Looks like user experience can be improved with this. It will need a good tune up before hitting the market tough.
