Screen recording is a feature that phones such as Samsung, LG, and OnePlus already have built-in into their skins. Having the ability to record the screen is a feature that stock Android lacked since its inception. If you wanted to video record the screen of your Pixel phone, you had to use a third-party app from the Play Store. However, Android 11 finally brings native screen recording support.

The upside of native support for screen recording is that no third party apps are required. Third-party apps use a lot of internal storage and most often put ugly watermarks on videos. This is no longer the case with Android 11. You can record high-quality videos directly from the notification panel.

  1. Unlock your phone and pull down the notification drawer.
  2. Scroll down and find a tile called Screen Record.
  3. Tap and hold the tile to move it to the top.
  4. Tap on Screen Record. The phone will ask if you want to start recording.
  5. Choose whether you want to record audio from a microphone or system audio.
  6. Choose if you want to show touches on the screen.
  7. Tap on Start to begin recording the screen.
  8. There will be a red notification sign in the notification drawer that says “Recording screen. Tap to stop”.
  9. When you are done, tap on the red sign to stop the recording.

The phone will automatically save the video. Open the gallery app and find the video you just recorded. It is this simple to screen record on Android 11.
