How to Share a Screenshot on Android

As Android has continued to progress in overall OS functionality, the mirroring of PC features has become more and more commonplace. For many, an Android phone or iPhone is their most used, and most useful, computer. And that is essentially what smartphones are these days – miniature pocket PCs.

One simple but immensely useful OS feature of Android is the ability to take a screenshot of what is currently on the screen. Whether one needs work related documentation, or simply a way to share something, taking a screen shot is a few button presses or swipes away in modern Android (Nougat, Oreo, Pie etc.).

Taking a screenshot with most Android phones requires one to either hold the power button or hold the power button and the volume down button at the same time. You can even take a screenshot with Google Assistant using the following command: “Hey Google, take a screenshot.”. But what if you want to share your screenshot with someone else, or email/upload it to one of your own accounts? This too is very simple.

I would imagine the navigation is similar in Oreo and prior OnePlus models, but it’s all in the details when it comes to major Android updates.

Android Pie on OnePlus 6 and Behind

I’ve owned the OnePlus 6 for about a week now, and while I want to do a full review after some more time with mid-range heartthrob, I will say that I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the transition from the Samsung Galaxy S7 thus far.

And with yesterday’s announcement of Android Pie’s (Android 9) official release for not only Google Pixel devices, but the Essential Phone as well, the rush of the honeymoon phase had a bit of fuel thrown into the fire.

This news, in conjunction with OnePlus’s prompt participation in the Android P beta, are signs that we could be seeing the official release of Android Pie for the OnePlus 6 sooner rather than later.
