A screenshot is a selfie taken by the 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. A similar question pops up in my mind when I first touched the latest Google Pixel 2 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 2 and Pixel 2 XL phone.
