navigator.clipboard.readText() not working

If navigator.clipboard.readText() remains in a pending state, does that mean it’s not supported in Samsung Internet? I’m curious whether this function isn’t fully supported or if there are limitations within the browser.


Thank you for posting on the Samsung Developers Forums.

According to Clipboard API - Web APIs | MDN (, the readText() API is partially supported in Samsung Internet.

  • From version 14.0, Requires Permission-Policy clipboard-read permission

Did you try testing on other Chromium-based browsers?
