The beta version of Android 13 was released in the summer of 2022. One of them is an innovative clipboard editor that makes copying, pasting, and editing text simple. This can be helpful when copying text from one social media account to another to edit and tweak before sending it to someone in a message or copying text from one social media account to another. How to accomplish editing copied text in Android 13 is quite simple.
How to edit copied text in Android 13
1. Open the Chrome browser (or whatever app or source from which you want to copy text).
2. Find a paragraph, phrase, or sentence you want to copy to test the feature.
3. Place your cursor over the desired selection of text and press and hold slightly, then drag the corner blue circles until what you want is highlighted.
4. Tap Copy.
5. When the bubble pops up around the highlighted text, you’ll see a small window with some of the highlighted text on the bottom, left of the screen. Tap it.
6. An editing window will appear where you can tweak the copy to your liking.
7. Once you’re done editing, tap Done at the top, left.
8. Close Chrome and open the app where you want to share the copied text, like an e-mail or an instant messaging app.
9. Where you’d compose text, press and hold slightly until the bubble pops up to Paste and select it.
10. Your newly edited text will now appear in the message.
The clipboard editor is a really neat feature within Android 13 for sharing edited passages from websites or documents, social media apps, e-mails, and other content. For someone who posts content across multiple social media sites but likes to tweak it for each one, this is a useful feature. It’s also, as noted, a clever feature for sharing website URLs without including all the extraneous information that might appear after the core link, like what you might find on a shopping site or a link to a hot new TV show on your favorite streaming service.
