HOW TO SET IT UP?

3. Universal Copy is ready, you can launch it anytime via: your notification drawer, a tile, a long press on a physical button of your phone

Note: The service can be deactivated automatically by your Android system, then you should enable the setting ‘let app run in background’ in Universal Copy and disable battery optimizer for Universal Copy. Unfortunately, this matter is out of our hands.
