Gboard is one of the most popular keyboard apps out there, and it has a ton of cool features, as well as nifty hidden tricks for power users. And now, Google is adding another useful feature to the mix.
In the latest beta version of Gboard, the keyboard clipboard is gaining the ability to display your recent screenshots for convenient access. The feature was first reported by Android Police and is reportedly available in the beta version of Gboard 10.5.04.367007960-beta. That said, it appears to be a limited server-side change, because I couldn’t get the feature to work in the latest beta of Gboard on my OnePlus 8T.
If you have access to the feature, you will be presented with a popup asking if you want to add screenshots to the Gboard clipboard. Once you’ve enabled the feature, the screenshots will start to appear in the clipboard section of the keyboard. Also, if you haven’t disabled clipboard suggestions in Gboard, you will also see screenshots of the suggestions within the keyboard app.
Obviously, you can also choose not to enable the feature. Either way, you can always turn the feature on / off from Gboard’s clipboard settings where you will find a new option to ‘Save recent screenshots to clipboard’.
As mentioned above, the feature is not available to everyone using the beta version of Gboard and appears to be a limited beta test. Hopefully, the feature will reach more users soon and will also see the light of day in the stable Gboard app.
