Hot to Take Screenshots on Google Pixel and Pixel XL

A screenshot is a selfie taken by phone itself. Though this action is performed by users (for their own purpose), a screenshot is a smartphone’s own photograph. Leaving this philosophy aside let me come to the subject. Screenshots are taken for a number of reasons. And whenever a new phone hits the market, users want to know how to take a screenshot. Similar question pops up in my mind when I first touched the latest Google Pixel phone.

Both Pixel phones have created a sensation in the smartphone world. Awesome features of Google Pixel phones have won the hearts of many users. The integration of Google Assistant is a killer one. To share such beautiful features with others, you need to take a screenshot on Google Pixel phone.

Step #2: Press and hold the power button given on the top right side of your phone.

Step #3: Immediately next, press and hold ‘down volume button’.

If everything goes well, a screenshot is captured and you can see a miniature version of the screen you clicked and a notification.

Can Google Assistant Help You Take Screenshot?

No, Google Assistant can’t help you as of now. However, this feature will be added in the next few months or even days. Everybody expects this feature to be added as it was available in Google Now on Tap in previous Android versions.

Google Pixel phones have minimum default storage capacity of 32GB and therefore, you can store a few more screenshots and selfies in the folder. If you love to capture more photos and videos, you should go for 132GB variant of Google Pixel or Pixel XL smartphone.

Pixel’s 12.3MP rear camera clicks amazing photos. Moreover, the selfie camera is of 8MP, hence you can click the best selfies with your smartphone. Unlike other smartphones that face battery issues while using camera, Google Pixel has installed a powerful battery that offers 7 hours of use from only 15 minutes of charging. This feature will never prevent you from clicking excellent photos, selfies and videos.
