MS Clipboard Cloud Sync EPIC FAILBeantwortet
I'm a senior IT systems engineer with MS creds. I just spent nearly three hours trying to get windows to sync my clipboard to/from my "ANDROID" device. Dont waste your time unless you have a Samsung (or win10 device).
But there's clear instructions... even MS support clearly indicating "Android". Just configure Windows clipboard sync, then configure "Your Phone", which then sends a link to your android for the app "Your Phone Companion" to complete the link. That was handy. Only when it's all setup and I'm in the app and see the clipboard sync feature missing that i dig into some MS support forums, follow their clear "Android" instructions, which for some reason takes me to Samsung support. Oh they have a unique app which works.
But then I discovered lots of articles and forum posts up to 3 years old talking about how MS Swiftkey is going to integrate this. Perfect, of course, how easy, surely by now... just wipe my old Swiftkey account and sign in with a new MS one, reconfigure everything and voila...nope. Oh turns it on MS Swiftkey BETA. Ok ok...install, configure... oh no, BETA just removes the ability to specify a search engine and forces you to use Bing. Quality feature.
Oh there's an API that tweaks Swiftkey for this feature (and apparently many more amazing things).... step 1: root your phone....
ive configured my PC settings, the "Your Phone" app, the "Your Phone Companion" app, Reinstalled swiftkey, installed and configured Swiftkey Beta. For NOTHING. And anybody who gets wind of this feature for their "ANDROID" is going to google it (because Bing), assume it works, and waist hours. Absolutely unacceptable.
3 hours of troubleshooting, 30 minutes of writing this ticket, you owe me $437.50 plus tax. Where should I send my bill?
