Greetings friends! “Long screenshots” or “scrolling screenshots” are present in some custom versions of Android like Xiaomi’s MIUI. Although it is a feature that is not supported by all apps. Long screenshots are one of the new native features in Android 12. Despite this, we don’t need to have our phone updated to Android 12 to be able to take long screenshots in Chrome. As long as we have updated the browser to the latest version. In this post, we will show you how to take long screenshots in Chrome for Android.
Open Google Chrome and type Chrome://flags in the address bar.
Then type in the search bar “Long”. This way you will quickly find the flag you need to activate. In this case, it is “Chrome Share Long Screenshots”.
After that, change the “Default” value to “Enabled” and restart the browser.
Then to take a Screenshot, open the Chrome menu and press the share button.
After that, choose the “Long Screenshot” option. You will see a preview of the screenshot, swipe to the part you want, and press the confirm button. Then you will see options to cut, write text and draw. Press next to continue. Finally, press “save to device only”. And that’s it!
Taking long screenshots on Android is a really useful feature, while waiting for the arrival of Android 12 on your phone, you can enjoy this feature in the Chrome browser. It will also allow you to edit the screenshots before they are saved to your phone’s downloads. Chrome is being updated every day adding more and more features that you should try now. Thanks for reading us. Goodbye!
