After the Android 12 update, the software screenshot button is completely gone for some users. For me it’s gone both in the default launcher (Quickstep) as well as in Lawnchair (where the Recent apps view is grey for some reason):
I can still use the Power button + Volume down macro to take a screenshot. Using this method I’m even able to take a scrolling screenshot. Some users reported it’s missing but I don’t think that’s the case. However, the app has to support it. For example Google Chrome supports it:
For my family members phone, using Lawnchair as well, the option is still in the menu.
This bug is really hard to pin down …
(can confirm the blurred background, that might have to do with how Android handles recents since A12. A11 always spawned Quickstep for that, but now launchers can offer it themselves, so that might be launcher specific. Quickstep on A13, blurred background in accent color BTW)
I don’t have it, which is something of a mystery. I have the latest stable Nova version installed (7.0.57) and have also tried the latest beta (8.0.3). App info and split screen are the only options.
The screenshot option appears in the Quickstep launcher, but Quickstep is not a working alternative for me.
Thanks for the screenahot app buttom thing. What I don’t get (and this is nothing to do with Fairphone) is why the heck they don’t have a video / guide showing you what has changed with an OS update!? How the heck are you supposed to discover this stuff!?
Make it option if you like, or even a separate help app… But come on…!
Individual apps are just as guilty. Sometimes without change logs (the bit you see if you manually update an app). Of even changing entire slabs of functionality (it happened with the Clock app (android 11) the other day.
Google should at least provide a baseline guide. The last change to their clock app not only changed the interface but also the time alert sound. If they don’t do anything about their own simple apps, then I don’t really hold out any hope…
Hi! Since the update to Android12 the screen capture button turned from the screen into the physical buttons, the problem being that one has to press at the same time power and volume down, which isn’t easy in the FP4.
