How to take scrolling screenshot in Android

take scrolling screenshot on Android

The easiest way to share any information from your phone screen is, just take a screenshot and send it to others. Taking a simple screenshot is also easy. Just press the combination of buttons, and you are done.

However, the in-built screenshot tool in Android has limitations. It only captures the things that are displayed on the screen. But what if the page you’re taking screenshot of, is way too long and scrollable?

Of course, you can take multiple screenshots. But, in that case, sending them in the correct order is real trouble. You can also stitch all the screenshots together with the help of a photo editing software. But, that will take extra time and effort.

In my opinion, it would be better if you could capture the whole page in just one screenshot. There are many apps available in Play Store that can take scrolling screenshot of a long page. One we’ll be using in this guide is called LongShot. Now, follow the instructions step by step to learn about how to take scrolling screenshot in Android.

Step 4:

When you are done, hit the save button. The screenshot will be saved in the LongShot folder.

Note: Alternatively, you can also use ‘Speed mode’. But in that case, you need to manually scroll the page down while taking a screenshot.
