Microsoft’s OneClip was undoubtedly one of the most interesting products from the company last year. The software giant never announced the service officially, and it was killed shortly after the service was leaked. Now, according to a new report from Windows Central, Microsoft will be bringing OneClip back in 2017. According to the report, the company’s Windows and Office teams are working on OneClip now, and it’s no longer a Microsoft Garage project. As a result, the company could be renaming OneClip to “Bundle” as well and integrate it into Office.
The new OneClip will work very similarly to how it did last year — you’ll be able to copy something on your computer, and access it from your mobile device very easily (and vice-versa). For example, if you copy a screenshot on your Windows 10 PC, it’ll be available on your Windows 10 Mobile device. Similarly, if you copy a phone number on your iPhone, you will be able to access it from your Android smartphone or a Mac. Microsoft is also planning to integrate OneClip into Office via the upcoming “Working Sets” features in Windows 10 Redstone 2. This will simply allow users to access their OneClip files and data on the sidebar while using an Office app such as Word without having to manually open OneClip on their PC.
Needless to say, Microsoft could make changes to its plans for the future of OneClip. Chances are, Microsoft will make major changes to the service before launching it publicly next year — so take it with a grain of salt.
