Google Chrome's new mobile and desktop sync tool teased

Google Chrome will let users copy and paste text from desktop to mobile.

The new tool will mean there will been no need to take notes with a pen and paper as it will be able to sync your clipboard to the two devices.

According to Android Police, the new tool will likely be released on Chrome Canary - an earlier version of the web browser used by developers first.

In other Google news, the firm has insisted it isn't trying to kill ad blockers.

The search engine has recently come under fire for its plan to improve extensions on Chrome, and they have clarified the claims.

Writing on the Google Security Blog, Devlin Cronin said: "We are not preventing the development of ad blockers or stopping users from blocking ads.

"Instead, we want to help developers, including content blockers, write extensions in a way that protects users' privacy."

There have been fears the Manifest v3 part of Google's plan could hurt ad blockers, as well as other extensions that modify website content.

It is designed to improve performance, privacy and security for Chrome extensions, but part of the charge limits how those extensions can modify sites.

There is a long list of rules, which includes blocking content from internet addresses supplying ads, and there are developers which think it will hurt their ad-blocking and privacy extensions.

Google's Simeon Vincent insisted the idea that the changes have been designed to "weaken ad blockers" is a "misconception".

He wrote on the Chromium Blog: "There's been a lot of confusion and misconception around both the motivations and implications of this change, including speculation that these changes were designed to prevent or weaken ad blockers.

"This is absolutely not the goal."
