OnePlus has released a new app called Clipt, which allows you to send text content, images and files from your Android phone to your Desktop, and vice-versa.

The app is in an early beta phase, so let’s find out how it works.

Download Clipt from the Google Play Store. The app uses Google Drive to sync data, so you will need to authorize Clipt to connect to your account.

Next, you need to install the Clipt extension on your Chrome browser on PC. OnePlus claims that you can use other Chromium based browsers like Vivaldi, Edge, or Brave. However, in our tests it only worked with Chrome.

When the app and the add-on have been installed on your devices, you can start using Clipt. Copy some text to the clipboard on your phone, and pull down the notification shade. Tap the Send button under the Clipt notification panel and the content will be synced with the Chrome browser on your computer.

The content is directly pasted to the PC’s clipboard, so you can paste it straight away. Likewise, you can also share URLs using the Link option. To send text content from your PC to your phone, click the Clipt button in your browser and choose the option Text or Link option.

If you want to share images or files, click the Upload button from the extension’s interface, after which you can drag and drop the content. Clipt also allows you to share media and files from your phone, just tap the relevant option, and then on the folder icon. Use it to browse to the file location on your device, and hit the send button. That’s it, its pretty simple to use.

Note: Chrome will run as a background application on your PC, even when you have closed the browser. This is necessary for the auto-sync to work.

So what about the privacy, well everything is stored on your Google drive, and synced between your devices. That pretty much explains it.

Clipt does not have a Firefox extension, OnePlus says it is not used to working with Javascript and that it may bring it to the browser if there is demand from the community. This seems like a lazy excuse for not porting the add-on to Firefox.

Clipt is not an open source app, but appears to be a nice alternative for AirDroid.
