Google just released the new version of Android 11 on the Pixel 2. I just updated my phone and in the list of new features, it had Build-in screen recording. I was intrigued as I have been using a third-party app to do the screen recording on Android 10 so having a built-in record would be perfect.

To start recording the mobile screen press the Screen Record start and the menu below will be displayed. Select the options you want to enable. Just take note of the message: “While recording, Android System can capture any sensitive information that’s visible on your screen or played on your device.
