Take and Edit Screenshots on Android Pie
Edited by Jay
Taking screenshots on Android-powered devices has always been pretty straightforward. As far as how users take screenshots, very little has changed over the years. That is until Android Pie rolled out this past summer. Now, users have an additional method for taking a screen capture, directly from the power menu.
The roll out of Android Pie also brought with it the feature to edit screenshots on the fly, without having to open the image in Google Photos or some other picture editing apps. Users can crop, highlight, and mark or draw on screenshots with a few taps. This is tremendously helpful for times when a specific element or section of the screen requires attention.
In the following VisiHow tutorial, we're going to demonstrate how to take, edit, and share screenshots on Android 9 (Pie). For this guide, we used a Google Pixel.

There are two ways to share a screenshot. The first is via the screenshot menu that appears briefly after grabbing a screencap. The second is in edit mode.
