Like the Send Tab to Google feature of Google Chrome, you can use a similar hidden flag to highlight text and copy it to another device's clipboard. This allows you to enable clipboard sharing on different devices in Chrome.
How clipboard sharing works
After you enable the flag, you will find a new "Copy to your device" option when you right-click highlighted text on a web page. All devices are displayed with the flag on which you are logged in with your Google account ̵
Like all flags in Chrome, this is a function that is still running. It can change or disappear from the flag page at any time. Google can release this soon as a stable feature that does not require a flag in the future. However, the beta feature is now available in the stable version of Google Chrome 79.

Enable clipboard sharing
This hidden feature is available as a flag. To find it, open a new tab, paste
chrome: // flags into Chrome's Omnibox and press Enter. Search for "Clipboard" in the search box.
You will see three separate flags. Each flag processes a different part of this function and must be enabled to function correctly.
Note: On Android you will only see the "Enable receiver for shared clipboard function" and "Enable shared clipboard function signals".
When finished, click the "Restart Now" button to restart your Chrome browser with the flags enabled.
Repeat this process on all devices that you use Chrome as a browser and want to copy text to the device's clipboard.
Copying text between devices
After you have enabled the flags and restarted your web browser, you can access the function via the context menu with the right mouse button.
Highlight some text from a web page and right click on it to display the context menu. Click on "Copy to your devices" and choose a device from the list.
A message also appears on the other device.
After copying the text copied to the device, right-click or long-press Android – and choose "Paste" as you would with anything on the clipboard.
If you do not see one of your devices listed here, make sure that the latest version of Google Chrome is running with these flags enabled and that you are logged in to the same Google account on all your devices.
Other functions are also available via Chrome Flags. We have compiled a list of the best Chrome flags to enable better browsing that you can view.
