If we now select and copy a text that includes, for example, a phone number, email, website or postal address, just by copying all the contact information at once we will have the phone, email, website and address separately.
When we open the keyboard again we will see in the clipboard suggestions that we can paste each of these data separately. as if we had copied each field one by one. Also when we open the clipboard we will see all the recognized capos along with the full text that we have originally copied. Each icon identifies the type of information recognized.

For example, if they now send us a message with the data of a contact, now we only have to copy the entire message and in the Contacts application, paste each data into its corresponding information field.
Google's new clipboard too is able to separate a series of numbers to offer us the possibility of being able to paste a number of that specific series. In other words, if we copy the series "11 22 33 44", Gboard will allow us to directly paste the number 33. It is also capable of recognizing various telephones, addresses, and co.
