    I noticed that the function "Write text in an app on your device" with android phones as destination would actually do the same as "Paste clipboard on your device". To get the sent text, I have to paste manually on the device. In earlier times, join would have directly written to the text entry which was open..

    Is this a recent change of this feature?

    android devices: s7 with latest stock fw and latest beta of join, s5mini with LineageOS 14.1 and latest join beta. tested also from https://joinjoaomgcd.appspot.com with same result.

    PS. all join diagnostics tests work flawlessly on each device and browser

    You have to have the Join accessibility service enabled on the device for it to write the text. :)

    I face this issue too.
    and yes, Accessibility service is on.
    I even try to uninstall and reinstall from playstore (beta)
    still not working.
    Clipboard is set but not auto paste.

    Oneplus 5T, Oxygen OS 9.0.3 (Android Pie)

    What app are you trying to paste in exactly? Can you try for example the SMS app on your phone?

    That's exactly what I see too. Glad I m not the only one.
    I tried writing to different apps, SMS, notes, android native mail client, outlook on android, etc.. always the same.
    I know it used to work.

    Samsung Galaxy S7 with all OTA updates installed.
    Join Beta version

    hi joao,
    yes, that version works again.
    well done! many thanks.
    I guess that fix is going to be added to the next release (I'm in the beta channel)?

    On your phone you have to have the app you want to write into opened and the Join accessibility service has to be enabled for it to work.

    This could be a different issue, but the copy clipboard to other device feature no longer works for me. I have all settings correct and it should be copying, but I see no toast anymore, and when I paste I get nothing.

    Do you mean automatic remote copy-pasting?
