New Delhi: It seems like Google has started to get serious about Android tablets as the tech giant is bringing a feature to Android tablets that is already available on Apple iPhones and iPads. Now, Android users will be able to use Copy and Paste and copy a URL or an image from the smartphone to their Android tablet. The feature will be rolling out with Android 13 later this year where users will be able to copy and paste across all their connected devices.
During Google I/O 2022 event, Liza Ma, Group Product Manager, Multi-Device Experiences at Google mentioned features specific to Android that are aimed to make users’ lives easier and one of them was a new tool that will let Android users seamlessly copy something on one device and paste it on another without the need for any messaging or email.
“And, we’re making it easier to help you get things done on the device that’s most convenient for you. You’ll soon be able to copy and paste a URL or photo from your Android phone to your tablet and vice versa. These features will roll out to Android phones and tablets with Android 13 this fall,” Ma said in a statement during Google I/O conference.
“Odds are, you’ll keep adding more connected devices into your home – and so will your family and friends. Whether these devices are for entertainment or productivity, we’re committed to work with our partners to bring you multi-device experiences that will make your life easier,” Ma added.
Google, in Android 13 will likely treat new copy as a screenshot where it will shrink the media to the corner and displayed and on the side of the window will be a small “Nearby Share” icon and Edit pencil.
