Once this option is activated, from that moment on when we take screenshots they will be accessible from the Gboard clipboard , showing the last screenshot in your suggestion so that sharing it is as easy as tapping on your suggestion.
By clicking on the clipboard icon we will access the most recent screenshots , and by clicking on each thumbnail they will be pasted into a conversation, thus avoiding having to open the gallery. The Gboard clipboard shows the last five or six screenshots.
