The latest Android version, Android 9.0 introduces by Google allows you to create screenshots and edit them. We will guide you how to edit a screenshot in Android Pie
Create Screenshots With Android Pie
We have used this feature in Android for a long time, using the physical buttons on your smartphone. With Android Pie, this will change, as more and more phones are eliminating the need for the home button with the introduction of face recognition for unlocking and swipe control. The latest Android Pie offers a new option to create a screenshot.
In fact, using Android Pie there are in general three way you can create your screenshots.
1. Two Physical Buttons
We have been traditionally creating screenshots on Android holding down two physical buttons. This differs from the devices we use and what buttons they have. Some smartphones it is the power button and the volume control button. In some other devices, it is the home and power button. As soon as the screen flashes the screenshot is made.
2. Using The Power Button
When you are using an Android 9.0 (Pie) device you will witness and the entirely new option to take a screenshot .W hen you press and hold the power button a new menu item will appear on the screen. This menu item also contains ‘Screenshot’. Press to take a screenshot.
3. Using Three Fingers When Using OnePlus
In case you are using a OnePlus smartphone you can create screenshots by swiping with three fingers. For Example, when using OnePlus 6 you will have to enable this option first in order to create screenshots.
Go to Settings > Buttons & Gestures > Quick Gestures and get the switch over at ‘screenshot with three fingers’. We are not sure which other smartphones support this feature but you can check the setting to find similar settings to enable the Three Finger swipe option for screenshots.
Edit Screenshots With Android Pie: Markup
With the latest Android Pie, you can also be able to edit your screenshot directly. The earlier version of Android you needed to look at the screenshot first to adjust later. With Android Pie, you need to as it comes with a feature called Markup. after taking a screenshot. With Android Pie, you do not have to, at least: if your device supports Markup. When you create a screenshot you will receive a notification. In this notification you can tap on ‘Edit’ then you will enter a new screen where you can adjust the image. The Markup feature allows you to quickly crop the screenshot or to draw on it. You can do all this without having to open another extra app.
