In Google Play, how do I copy the URL of an app I'm browsing so that I can paste it into a post or on a word document or notepad using my Android device? In a web browser it's easy to do this, but what about other apps that have corresponding URLs or other URIs?


If you have Google Drive installed on your device then you can use the 'Copy to clipboard' option within the share menu.

If you scroll down past the reviews you should see a 'Share' button:

Share button

After clicking this you will be shown the share menu which contains a 'Copy to clipboard' option:

Copy to clipboard

Clicking this will copy the URL for the app to your clipboard, allowing you to paste this into another app.
