Android smartphone - How to record your Android screen

Curious as to how recording your screen works? We’ve got all the details for you. Let’s take a look, starting with Android’s built-in feature.

Android built-in screen recording

Android has had built-in screen recording capability for some time, however, it is quite challenging to enable. Even with the latest OS, Android Q (unofficial name), which is currently in beta, you can record your device’s screen.

But, this feature continues to remain buried within developer options, leaving most Android users unaware of its existence. If you are fortunate enough to have the latest OS version, here is how to activate native screen recording.

Please note: These instructions will vary depending on your device.

Head over to developer options in Settings, locate Feature flags and click on it. Scroll down to the settings_screenrecord_long_press option and enable the feature using the toggle button.

Now it’s time to bring up the power menu by pressing and holding down the power button. On the power menu, tap and hold down the screenshot button which will display a screen recording pop-up. Click the Start Recording button, and you are good to go.
