Cloud Clipboard tool will sync content across all Microsoft-connected devices

On the enterprise side, Microsoft is betting a lot on the cloud. Recently, we’ve seen the Redmond giant increase its fight against Amazon, opening more data centers.

When it comes to consumers, Windows 10 is the flagship product that Microsoft has to offer. Long overdue, it seems that finally, Cloud Clipboard will be coming to Windows 10 with the Redstone 5 update.

Cloud Clipboard makes its way to Windows 10 RS5

Italian website AggiornamentiLumia has discovered that a new Settings page has appeared in a RS5 build of Windows 10. You can see it in the image above. Yes, this is the same OneClip feature Microsoft told us 2 years ago.

Announced last year at Build, this feature was meant to be released with the Fall Creators Update. Fast-forward half a year later, and we have Redstone 5 build 17623 which makes it almost sure that Cloud Clipboard is ready for prime-time.

As we can see from the above screenshot, the feature may either work in Automatic Mode, meaning everything you copy gets synched automatically or manually, where you have the option of choosing specific devices.

Microsoft’s Cloud-powered Clipboard is very similar Apple’s “universal clipboard” but it will work on any Windows, Android or iOS devices.

Those running the stable branch of Windows 10 will get this new feature in Windows 10 1809 in September or October 2018. Obviously, participants of the Windows Insider program will get this feature earlier.

Although this is a much-needed feature, my guess is that once released, the need for specific clipboard managers for Windows 10 will still be here.
