This is how Android 11’s native screen recording is used
Of course, before you can use this feature, you need to make sure that your mobile is correctly updated to Android 11. To date, only some models, such as the Pixel or the OnePlus 8 have received the update.
Pull down the quick settings panel by swiping down from the status bar.
Find the setting called “Record Screen.” In case it doesn’t appear, you can show it by tapping on the pencil icon at the bottom left and dragging it from the bottom to the top.
When you’ve found it, tap the “Record Screen” icon and wait for the pop-up menu to appear. Now you can decide if you want to capture the audio from the mobile microphone or the internal audio from the device, or both. You can also show screen touches.
Tap on “Start” to start capturing the screen.
When you’re done recording, pull down the notification panel and tap the red notification to stop capturing.
That’s it. Now you can share the video you have recorded, either through the gallery app of your mobile or from the notification itself that will indicate that the recording has been saved.
While this function is available on Pixels with Android 11It should also work on other phones updated to the latest Android version. However, some manufacturers have incorporated their own screen recording systems, whose operation may be somewhat different from that of Android 11’s native recording.
