You can utilize it to catch words from something like a page or a report, sure, however you can likewise utilize it to feature and duplicate anything from inside a picture, a screen capture you’d recently saved, or even a space of Android that wouldn’t regularly allow you to choose and duplicate content — like a particular screen inside the framework settings, for example.
Regardless, all you’ve gotta do is open up your Pixel’s Overview interface — by swiping up an inch or thereabouts from the lower part of the screen and afterward halting, in case you’re utilizing Android’s present signal framework, or by tapping the square-formed catch at the lower part of the screen, in case you’re actually clutching the old heritage three-button nav arrangement — and afterward press and hold your finger onto the words you need inside the perspective on your most as of late utilized application (or some other application in your present history).
However long your telephone is running Android 11 or higher, you should see the content being referred to get chosen.

2. Pixel superpower: The rapid content offer

Playing out this accomplishment is very like pulling off our first piece of Pixel divination: Once more, you’ll open up the Overview interface and afterward press and hold your finger onto whatever text you need to duplicate inside the see of any as of late utilized application. The lone contrast is that this time, you’ll select “Offer” from the menu that surfaces, and afterward select whatever application you need to send the content to from that point.
In the event that what you require is setting, you can likewise choose “Search” rather than “Offer,” and your Pixel will send the content into another Google Search case quicker than you can say “Aw, shucks, Siri sucks.”
Doesn’t get a lot simpler than that.

On the off chance that you have any ride-sharing applications like Lyft on your telephone, you ought to likewise see the alternative to send any locations straightforwardly into them for simple and prompt preparing.
