Mobile Phone | Partial screenshots - Hidden feature in Android 7.1 Nougat

Mobile Phone

Mobile Phone | Certainly, you can take a screenshot on most Android phones by holding the power and volume-down buttons at the same time. But what if you only want to capture a portion of the screen?

Partial screenshot means the ability to select only a portion of the display for screenshotting, rather than capturing the entire screen and later cropping it in a third-party app.

This function is present but hidden, as in a small change in the Android source code is required to enable it.

It is not clear so far if Google or other Android smartphone manufacturers will be enabling the feature in their Android 7.1 Nougat builds, but it will present a welcome change which will make taking screenshots a more convenient experience And more easily.

It has been discovered by android developers inside the open-source build of Android 7.1 Nougat.

We hope more such smaller additions, like perhaps scrolling screenshots, are made part of stock Android in the future.
