We earlier reported that Google is working on a new Copyless feature that would allow users to copy text from one application to another and it seems that company has started testing the new feature in its Chrome application for Android.
As per a report by VentureBeat, the search-engine giant has deployed the first code for the new feature on Chrome Canary for Android, though turning it on might not do anything. The feature will probably take data from Chrome and use that to improve the experience in other apps, the reports added. In order to use test feature, one has to enable it via chrome://flags in Chrome Canary app.
“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,” the flag’s description read. Further, the data is stored locally and is not shared with Google.
The brand is reported to have begun the testing of the new Copyless feature in February and the latest feature will debut with the Chrome 60 update for Android in next few months. For your reference, the current version of the app is Chrome 58.
The report further highlights that the new feature does not work when one is in incognito mode and it seems that the low-end devices will not be able to use this feature.
