Looks at “What’s On Screen” for the current app and displays the the results (if any).

Designed for people trying to take advantage of the new “Receive What’s On Screen” input feature, this checks for any input and displays it in a Show Result action.

If the place you’re running this from provides any on-screen content—which is usually in the form of content like a URL back to the current page—then the shortcut will display that for you.

Run this from the Share sheet or use Siri while you’re looking at something to see if there’s anything there you can utilize – then you’ll have the information you need to start building a separate shortcut designed to accept that type input.

This shortcut also utilizes the updated Input mechanism inside each shortcut; “If there’s no input” then the shortcut is set to “Stop and Respond” with a prompt that says “Nothing on-screen can be detected here!” which will show on-screen or be spoken by Siri if run using voice.
