With the One UI 2.0, the screen recorder feature brings extra control (such as record internal and external sounds and adjust the resolution) to the Samsung Galaxy smartphone users.

With the screen recorder feature, you can capture a funny meme, record your gameplay, make a reaction video, or show a loved one how to do something on their phone.

How to use a native screen recorder?

  1. To open the Quick Settings panel, swipe down from the top of the screen with two fingers.
  2. Swipe left and then tap Screen recorder.
  3. Once the countdown timer finishes, your phone will start recording whatever’s on the screen.
  4. When you’re done recording, tap the Stop icon. The video will be automatically saved in Gallery.

To add yourself to the video using the front-facing camera, just tap the Front camera icon – it looks like a person icon. A small window will appear in the upper left corner and will record everything you do.

Remember: Screen recorder will not record phone, VOIP calls, or video calls. Additionally, some apps may block the screen recorder feature due to copyright restrictions.

Exclusive for the Galaxy Note users: You can also write on the screen while it’s recording. Tap the Pencil icon, select your desired color, and then use your finger or S Pen to write on the screen. However, you cannot interact with games, videos, or navigational options while you’re writing on the screen. Once you turn off the Pencil feature, the screen will go back to normal.
