Android 12 DP1: Scrolling screenshots are here, nonetheless disabled for now

After years of ready on Google to introduce the aim, scrolling screenshots are indirectly a fragment of Android 12, nonetheless you, unfortunately, can’t get admission to them without distress.

Backtracking true a bit, Google confirmed it might possibly well adopt scrolling screenshots as a local aim over two years within the past, at some stage within the time Android 10 was released. In Android 11, the groundwork was laid for the aim with a novel screenshot UI, nonetheless it didn’t originate it to primetime and was never fully working.

With the main Android 12 Developer Preview, scrolling screenshots can even be activated from their disabled affirm. Once turned on, a “scroll” button is added to the screenshot UI which actually works. Properly, it extra or much less works. In our temporary trying out, the aim is lovely picky. It works exciting on the Settings app and Twitter, in every cases most efficient shooting about one extra hide’s worth of bellow. Alternatively, it isn’t engaged on Chrome or Google Peek. Critically, too, the FAB on Twitter presentations up extra than one cases within the screenshot.

At the least, even supposing, here’s huge growth, as in Android 11’s previews the aim was customarily fully non-purposeful.

This aim can even be enabled by ADB, nonetheless we don’t point out you dig into it. For one, Android 12 DP1 is already unstable ample as it stands, and the commands dilapidated to enable scrolling screenshots hold the aptitude to damage things even extra. Dazzling know that, indirectly, this aim is coming.

We’re still digging by means of Android 12 to head trying to procure all that’s unique. Read the comfort of our coverage here, and must you noticed something we didn’t, go a comment!

Thanks Michael!
