You can take screenshots in Android Marshmallow with a tap on a icon

If you are lucky and your smartphone is upgraded to Android’s new Marshmallow version, Google has made taking screenshots a super easy job. Earlier, on Android smartphones in all versions you had to clumsily pressing down the button combinations (usually volume down and power) that most Android devices require for screenshots.

Google and the Android engineers have finally come up with a simpler way of snapping a screenshot of your Android phone — at least if you’re lucky enough to be running Marshmallow. As noted by Droid Life, the company has updated Android 6.0’s Now on Tap feature with a new icon that will take a screenshot instantaneously. Also the screenshot can now be shared instantly.

The small but clever addition should prove particularly useful for owners of the new Nexus 6P and other smartphones which are going to get Marshmallow soon. It should noted that taking screenshots has been one of the leading complaints from Android users world over.

Android 6.0 Marshmallow is being very slowly rolled out by major smartphone makers including Motorola with its Moto X Pure Edition. So eventually there should be a decent number of devices that gain this convenient little option. If you’ve already got one, just download the latest Google update from the Play Store. Instead of awkwardly shuffling your hand to hold down a pair of buttons, now you’ll just be holding down Android’s home button. Much better, Google.
