Google has offered a basic way of taking a screenshot for whatever happens on your screen. However, Google has experimented a new feature called ‘Partial Screenshots’ on the Android 7.1.1 Nougat. This feature was first spotted by an XDA member known as MrWasdennnoch who saw it tucked away inside an Android Nougat source code.

The feature’s name explains its functionality fully. Rather than capturing the entire display, the partial screenshot lets users select their ideal area of the display to capture. This eliminates the need to crop screenshots afterwards in case you want to focus on a particular part of the onscreen project.

How to take scrolling screenshot on any Android device

There are no details of the feature and when it is expected to be activated by Google. Thanks to Flextrick, a Senior Member on XDA-Developers, who have launched an application that let users who run KitKat 4.1 and above to take partial screenshots.

Install Screenshot Crop & Share

Install Screenshot Crop & Share app on Google Play Store. The app is updated frequently to get rid of bugs.

Grant Permissions

After installing the app, it brings an intro explaining its features. It also requests the needed permissions to be granted so that it can function fully. Make sure you grant the required permissions. Tap ‘Read’ when the whole thing is green. Then grant the storage permission request that will pop up in case you are on Android 6.1 or higher.

Take the partial screenshot

After you have set the application, feel free to take your first partial screenshot. You just need to take a screenshot like you typically would. Once you take the screenshot, a Material Design toolbar opens up and then provides you with a variety of options such as save and cancel, delete, share, and edit. Since you want to take a partial screenshot, tap the edit option and then make your changes and save the partial screenshot.

The best part of this application is that it works on all the Android versions from Android 4.1 to Android Nougat. It does not matter what Android phone you are using, the application has you covered.
