Google is Adding Features to the Screenshot Tool, But Only in the Google App for Now

google app screenshot tools

A few weeks in the past, I requested Google to build screenshot scrolling into Android, since nearly each and every different phone maker on the planet has achieved so aside from them. Over the weekend, they in fact started rolling out a screenshot-related update, it’s simply that it’s handiest to be had in the Google App and it isn’t scrolling seize. It is lovely cool, despite the fact that.

Some customers (as you'll be able to see above) are being brought about to flip the characteristic on when in the Google App. As the teaser suggests, the new screenshot characteristic is a suite of gear that can help you edit and percentage all of the screenshots you're taking. How is that other from what we have already got, you ask? I’ll inform you.

Whilst you flip this option on (Google App>Settings>Accounts & privateness>Edit and percentage screenshots), which used to be first noticed by way of 9to5Google, in a while after you're taking a screenshot, you’ll get a steered at the backside of your display with choices to “Edit” or “Percentage.” As an alternative of the screenshot and its choices hiding in a notification, you get brought about on-screen.

If you happen to faucet on “Edit,” you’ll get 3 new buttons: crop, achieved, and draw.” The crop button permits you to briefly crop the dimension of your screenshot, the achieved button permits you to end and percentage, and the draw button permits you to…draw (in other colours). So no scrolling seize, however you do get fast resizing and drawing without having to open the rest, like Google Footage.

And once more, this handiest works inside of the Google App, so in case you are in Chrome, you received’t see those gear. But for those who do searches from inside of the Google App, then load up Chrome pages from there, it’ll paintings (as you'll be able to see above). Possibly there may well be plans to enforce this in Chrome or different apps or Google Assistant, now that’d be great.

The choice is there for me in v7.21.19.21 of the Google App.
