How To Take Android Screenshots Using Google Now

If you are a smartphone user, you’ll probably take screenshots often, let it be your WhatsApp conversations, Facebook posts, Twitter tweets or Speedtest results to brag about your Internet connection. Even some people take screenshot of Instagram pictures and WhatsApp DPs. 😉

So the point is, we often take screenshots for many reasons, it’s one of the most used features of a smartphone these days. But whenever I take screenshots, I often end up showing my phone’s battery life, notifications and other necessary things at the top. I always find them annoying. People often comment like, “Bhai, low battery, quickly charge your phone!”, “You are getting 4G signal inside your house?”, etc. Sometimes I like them, but sometimes it deviates from the original post. I can crop the image and share it without any issue, but it’s quite time-consuming for a typical smartphone user IMO.
