It uses the Microsoft map (Microsoft Graph) and the Project Rome API, as well as the Swiftkey input method for mobile devices. If you don't remember, look back at Joe BelfioreBuild 2017 second daysA presentation of a keynote speech (about 45 minutes and 45 seconds).
Interestingly, someone recently found a prototype of the cloud clipboard in Windows 10 Insider build 17004, but it has nothing to do with Microsoft map.
Microsoft has been discussing the feature for some time, but it has recently released it.A patent called "Interacting with a Clipboard Store"It seems to have revealed more details about the cloud clipboard.
The initial submission of the patent was August 2016, which explained in detail a "Multi project clipboard memory"The working principle of" (a multi-item clipboard store).
It is worth mentioning that the patent also describes a kind of "Cross device content transmission operation"(from one device to another specific user device), its process is shown in the following diagram.
After browsing, we found that its UI is highly consistent with Microsoft's demonstration on Build 2017, such as displaying the latest content items just added to the clipboard by pop-up window.
In fact, the patent has been described.9 different replication modesOne of these cloud clipboard patterns can mark the selected content as private, collection, or temporarily saved for a period of time (after maturity automatically disappears).
Of course, even if patents describe many interesting functions, Microsoft will not soon be put into practice. It is not clear whether these intelligent functions will finally integrate into Windows 10.
