Every OEMS offers different ways in which you can capture and save a screenshot on Android. Most of them at least include the basic hardware button combination for saving screenshots, many will include additional methods that can trigger the action to get you the image you want to take a screenshot of.

In this article, we want to show you four different ways through which you can capture and save screenshots on your Google Pixel 6 and the Pixel 6 Pro.

Method 1: Hardware Buttons

As mentioned most Android OEMs include the button combination so if you’re looking for a quick way to capture a screenshot then simply press the power and the volume down buttons at the same time. You don’t need to press and hold both the button, instead just a quick press of both the buttons at the same time and you can see a screenshot will appear at the bottom of the screen on your Google Pixel 6 or the Pixel 6 Pro.

Method 2: Google Assistance

If you are busy and your hands are not available for the button combination then you should know that you can do this in a hands-free way as well. Google Assistant is a great app at performing basic tasks like this and it is available for every Android device.

You just simply tap the voice search button on the Google search to tell the assistant to take a screenshot.

Anytime that happens google will capture that screenshot and save that for you now.

You can also launch the Google Assistant app to take the screenshot by telling the assistant to take the screenshot.

Also, if you set up the “Ok Google” command then you can take screenshots without even touching your device. Just say “Ok Google” to launch the assistant and tell the app to take the screenshot.

Method 3: Recent Page section

Another method you can use is available whenever you’re viewing the recent page or the multitasking screen and you see the screenshot button there. However, most people are not trying to capture the screenshot when they are switching apps but if you bring up the recent page you can see there is going to be a screenshot button down at the bottom. You can simply tap and save an image of that screen.

Method 4: Gestures

If you are the type who prefers gestures then you should know that there is a quick tap gesture for the Google Pixel 6 and the Pixel 6 pro. It offers the ability to capture a screenshot however this has to be set up ahead of time.

Open Settings app.

Scroll down at the bottom and tap on System.

Tap on Gestures to set up the gesture to take a screenshot.

In gestures, tap on “Quick Tap” and enable it.

Once enabled choose “Take Screenshot” from the list.

With this option enabled you can take screenshots by tapping a couple of times at the back of your device.

That is a wrap-up for today’s article showing you four different ways through which you can capture and save a screenshot on the Google Pixel 6 and the Pixel 6 Pro.
