Microsoft SwiftKey Keyboard is one of the most popular keyboard apps on Android, and if you’re a Windows user, your life will be a lot easier, thanks to its ability to allow users to copy and paste text between the app and Windows.

Microsoft has pushed a new update to its SwiftKey Keyboard app, taking the app version to 7.9.0.5. With the latest update installed, you’ll be able to copy text to their Android smartphone or tablet clipboard and paste it on their Windows PC – and vice versa.

The feature Cloud Clipboard integration debuted in the SwiftKey Keyboard beta app a couple of months ago, and now the company is making it available for stable version of the app. The feature can work on both Windows 10(October 2018 update or later) and Windows 11 provided that you have the latest version of the keyboard app on your phone.
