A pre-installed screen recording feature on the Q Beta is one of the amazing things happening to Android
Imagine having the ability to record your screen like its done on the iOS. I mean you don’t have to envy the iPhone users anymore if perhaps you start using the Android Q. It is another of those rear native features that are been adopted on iOS, and for some reasons, it makes a perfect sense for me, plus the fact that it comes pre-installed on the phone (equipped with the Android Q).
According to the YouTube channel Techusiast as seen in the video below, the Android Q Developer Preview Beta 1 already has Screen Recording feature, confirming rumors from earlier this year.
Spotted on the Google Pixel subreddit, one user explains that Beta users can go to Settings -> System -> Advanced -> Developer Options -> Feature Flags and then to enable “settings_screenrecord_long_press”. Then you’ll be able to start screen recording by long-pressing the Screenshot button, initially launched with the Power key.
A dialog box will ask you to approve record voiceover and show taps, and then voila – it starts recording. You can see how it’s done in the video below after the 7:30 marker.
The Power menu also brings out the Emergency option, which is currently available only through the lock screen when you start typing your PIN. Previous rumors also pointed to Sensor Privacy, Wi-Fi WPA3, and 5G support. We expect all these features to be officially announced between May 7 and May 9 when the Google I/O is taking place.
