- You will see an animation on your phone screen with a beep sound.
- To see your screenshot open the notification panel and tap on the “Screen shot taken” notification.
- Or you can also check out your screenshots in the gallery below the Screenshot album.
Method 2: Dedicated application
In this method you need your phone with internet connection.
- Unlock your phone and head to the all apps and launch Google Play Store.
- Search for Go screenshot in there and install that app on your phone.
- After installing, launch the app and minimize it by tapping the home key once.
- You will see a semitransparent button on the screen with the camera icon.
