I’m stoked to see this happen as well. Especially once it advances beyond merely text and URLs. Image and video shares are huge. Code/file shares too.

I’m also intrigued how this can help scientific/academic paper writing when combined with other proposals like scroll to text fragment: https://github.com/WICG/ScrollToTextFragment


Cheers,

You are absolutely right. But the ultimate goal is to enable sharing from webapp-to-webapp. Please see:

https://github.com/WICG/web-share-target<https://nam06.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fgithub.com%2FWICG%2Fweb-share-target&data=02%7C01%7Caarongu%40microsoft.com%7Ccb90d3d2430d4a9b8e6908d71c27a9cb%7C72f988bf86f141af91ab2d7cd011db47%7C1%7C0%7C637008828987194642&sdata=1VMjnbqfg3FE%2BkczGLWlY19X%2Fl%2FmYieRxe9P71LLiuM%3D&reserved=0>

I’m really excited about Share Target because it means happily sharing between both native and web apps.

How awesome is that?! 🤩
