One feature that Apple ecosystem users will always brag about is the ability to seamlessly copy and paste between their iPhones and MacBooks. The OnePlus OneLab experimental app team is trying to fix this issue for Android and PC through the Clipt release. A cross-platform clipboard tool with similar functions.
Use Clipt to send Media between Devices
With Clipt, you can send text, pictures and other files between devices. Currently, Clipt can be used on Android and PC (Windows, MacOS, Linux) through the Google Chrome extension. Download the link below. Yes, so you are not limited to the operating system installed on your computer. But please note that it is currently only available for Google Chrome browser and not for other Chromium browsers.
First, you need to download the Clipt app for Android. (Free) and Chrome extensions (free) through additional links. The application uses Google Drive to transfer data between your devices. According to OnePlus, Clipt cannot see what is being sent when using the app.
“In the permissions, you’ll see we request the read and write of your Google storage, but Clipt can only download the files it creates as it’s siloed. In the app or extension we keep the last 10 items available to you, but after that it auto deletes so it won’t fill up your storage,” says OnePlus in its forum post.
Although Clipt is currently only available in Google Chrome, the app team is working hard to make the extension compatible with other Chromium browsers such as Brave and Edge. The application may support Firefox in the future. There are several regulations for other unfinished functions. And you can turn off the automatic text copy function from the PC.
It’s worth noting that you don’t need a OnePlus phone to use this application. If you want to try it out, please download the app and try it out. iPhone users will have to wait because Clipt is currently under development for iOS.
