On Android, Clipboard.getStringAsync() returns "" but can still paste

Im on SDK 41 Managed.

When I call getStringAsync(), it returns an empty string, yet when I focus an input field in the app and try to paste, it puts what’s actually on the clipboard there. If I go to Chrome I can also paste what’s on the clipboard, but for some reason Expo getStringAsync cannot read it.

This is happening on a compiled version on Android Galaxy S8.

I noticed that Android also keeps a keyboard history. Could that be related?

Any idea what could be the cause? Quite the head scratcher…
