I was looking for an app or an API to copy currently calling phone number to the clipboard where I could paste them to PC directly.

For instance, I'm getting a phone call from (xxx-xxxx-xx) on my android phone and having an app called pigeon that automatically sends any clipboard copied content to PC.

Let's say I want the current calling phone number to be copied and sent to the connected pc to paste in a database searching for said client.

is there a way to achieve that efficiently?

  • Have you checked the different adb logcat and it's different buffers like main event system if it contains information on incoming calls? developer.android.com/studio/command-line/…

  • @Robert It seems too complicated for the required task

It is possible with Tasker.

  1. First, Create a profile that triggers this task.
  2. Then set, State > Call Incoming.
  3. Next set, Task > clipboard to %CNUM (caller number)

I'm linking a Reddit post which has the exact project and an additional getting started with Tasker guide for your reference.
