With a wide variety of Android devices comes a few different ways of doing things. Take screenshots for example – there are many ways to take everyone’s sneaky pastime activity. So we’ve curated some tricks for you to try:


How to Take a Screenshot on Android 


Let’s start with the basics. This works on practically all Android devices across the board. Just press and hold the Power Button + Volume Down until the screen flashes. If the screenshot was taken, you’ll see a small preview thumbnail in the corner of the screen. It’s as easy as that! 


Take Scrolling Screenshots


You know when you want to take a screenshot of more than what appears on the screen? Well gone are the days of multiple screenshots for just one recipe or DIY task- you can now take a ‘scrolling screenshot’ to capture a full webpage. 

It’s pretty simple. All you need to do is take a normal screenshot and then select the scrolling screenshot icon on the thumbnail preview. Now you will have the option to scroll more to capture more, or be presented with a crop-able version of the full page. Yay! 


Take a Screenshot With Your Voice


Now, this has to be the easiest way to capture a screenshot, you don’t even have to touch the screen or press any buttons. Google Assistant can take screenshots with just a command. All you need to do is say, “Hey Google, take a screenshot.” – The screenshot will be captured, and you’ll immediately see the options to share, edit, or delete the screenshot. 


Tap the Back of Your Phone to Take a Screenshot


This next one is a pretty nifty shortcut if you take a lot of screenshots. All you have to do is tap the back of your phone! On Pixel devices, you can do this from Settings > System > Gestures > Quick Tap. However, if you have another device, you may need to download an app called “Tap, Tap” to perform the same function (and more). 

There you have it! Let us know which is your go-to way to capture a screenshot.
