Creepy Copy and Paste Feature

I have recently noticed that if I copy any text in any app by using the traditional tap and hold method I can paste it in any app in another one of my Samsung devices by simply tap and holding.

For example I am typing this message on my Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra.
If I open my other Samsung galaxy note 10; touch and hold any typing field in any app I can paste the text from my Note 20.

This is quite handy in my part because makes transfer of information between devices very seemless.
I however wonder how the transfer occurs and I haven't seen any changelog of software update that points to this feature.
I wonder if this is a feature of the Android 11 in general or it's specific to UI 3.1 on Samsung devices.

It's kept in a clipboard which I assume is cloud stored in your Samsung account, but not 100% sure.

It's this option "Continue apps on other devices" which is available in one ui 3.1.

The screenshot was taken on my S20 Ultra and this post is from my S21 Ultra.
