The clipboard is a feature of the keyboard i.e. the
Input Method in android terminology.
Assuming you are using gboard which is google's keyboard; you should see the
clipboard button towards the top right of the keyboard. Depending on your device, it might also be inside the 3-dot menu item that can be clicked on to expand the rest of the list.
Clicking on this reveals more buttons. One of which is the clipboard. You could use copied items for one hour from this clipboard. In order to save items permanently, you can pin them.
