Downloading third-party applications for screen recording can be dangerous. The primary function of these apps is to be able to record everything on a monitor, so it is easy to see how a malicious developer can exploit this for their own profit. Therefore, the addition to the Android 10's built-in screen recording is so effective.
With Android Q, you can take advantage of Android's built-in screen recorder to share your screen. This feature will cater for most of you, with just the basics that let you record, pause recordings, stop and save, and of course share. There are no special settings or confusing options, making it a pretty simple tool when you know how to unlock it.
By default, the new feature is hidden for users. But with a few steps, you can take advantage of this feature and never need to download another screen recording app again.
Step 1: Enable developer options
By default, the screen recorder is disabled so you have to activate it manually. Before that, you must first amplify the "Developer Options" menu.
Open the setup app, select "About phone" and then press "Construction number" at the bottom at least 7 times in a row. You will be prompted to enter your password, PIN or gesture. Once you have done so, you will return to the previous page, and it will say "You are now a developer!" Now return to the "System" settings, select "Advanced" to display more options, and you will now see "Developer Options".
Step 2: Enable the Screen Recorder
In the "Developer Options" menu, select "Function Flags" in the Debugging . Then you find the "settings_screenrecord_long_press" flag and switch it on.
Once enabled, you can now use the new built-in screen recorder. Press the power button for a long time to access the power menu and then long press the screenshot button until you see a menu popup with the "Start recording" button. Tap it and a new popup will appear warning that this program will capture everything on your screen. Select "Start Now".
A notification will be displayed entitled "Screen Recording" with stop, pause and cancel options available. Each one does as the name implies, so you can stop the recording, pause it or end it without saving it. The message can be accessed at any time by pulling the tray from below the top.
When you turn "Stop", the video is saved in your default gallery in a folder called "Captures." In the message stating that it has been saved, you also have the option to "Share" or "Delete" the video. If you try to capture a screenshot during a recording, it seems to break the screen recording, so remember it. The quality varies from unit to unit.
