How to Capture Screenshots On Android using Google Assistant

If you have been using Android for a while, you might know that the operating system has a screenshot utility that triggers while holding the volume up + Home button. In some phones, it works by holding both the Volume Up + Volume Down buttons.

The stock screenshot utility of Android smartphones works well. You need to open the page where you want to take the screenshot and press the physical buttons. However, what if the Volume or Home button of your phone is broken or not working?

Note: If you are using the Google Assistant standalone app, then head to the Google Play Store and update the app.

Step 1. First of all, launch Google Assistant on your Android device.

Step 2. Now tap on the three horizontal lines as shown below.
