First reported and discovered by VentureBeat, Google is working on a feature called "Copyless Paste" in Chrome that will provide suggestions for text input based on your recent context. While the feature is now available as a flag (#enable-copyless-paste) in the latest build of Chrome Canary for Android (version 60), turning it on does not do anything yet. However, the flag's description does provide an example of how the feature might work:

"For example, if you looked at a restaurant website and switched to the Maps app, the keyboard would offer the name of that restaurant as a suggestion to enter into the search bar."

Google appears to have begun work on their "Copyless Paste" feature in February, and code was committed as recently as last week. Presumably, the feature will arrive on Chrome 60 for Android in the next few months.
