How to take Screenshots on Android

Taking Screenshots on Android is not a big task. Google introduced the unified keypress option to capture the current screen on Android from the earlier versions easily.

Most Android phones support the general keypress option, i.e., volume down key and power button combinations to take the current screen screenshot.

Since Android is a customizable open-source project, most OEMs modify the core android to make them customizable based on their UI. For example, Samsung customized the stock Android to make their own One UI, Mi changes them to make MIUI, and Oppo makes their one Color OS.

Once the customization is made, the default screenshot-taking options also get changed. The general volume down and power button combination works with some modification based on the OEM’s change.
