Google Chrome for Android has a new screenshot tool that makes it easier to edit and share screenshots on the go. This feature has been in development for a long time, but only now is it widely distributed among users of the stable version of the browser.
The built-in screenshot tool was first spotted in Chrome Canary last June. This feature had a different interface with Edit, Delete, Save, and Share buttons at the bottom of the screen. The final version displays the Crop, Text, and Draw buttons. In addition to this, the buttons “Close,” “Undo,” “Redo,” and “Next” also appear at the top.
The new feature will be useful for those who are used to taking screenshots while browsing. When you open the Share menu on a web page, the screenshot editor appears in the bottom panel and other options. Next, access to the main editing tools opens, which allows you to select an area with a marker, add text to an image, or crop a screenshot.
Google is also working on adding a scrolling screenshot feature, but this feature is not yet available in Chrome. It will likely appear in the next browser updates. It remains unclear if this innovation is part of the latest Chrome update for Android or a server-side change. In any case, you should try updating to version 91.4472.77.
