After upgrade android 9 Pie

Hi,

I finally updated my software on my Samsung A8, which I totally hate, Anyways just want to know there is a new way to take a screenshot.

The old Volume Down+Power button combination still works for taking a screenshot on your Android 9 Pie device, but you can also long-press on Power and tap Screenshot instead (Power off and Restart buttons are listed too).

 

I long press on power and i only see power off restart option, there should be a screen on the side that comes up with screenshot option but i don't have it, does anyone know why?

Hello @princess1313,

 

Every manufacturer has different ways to take a screenshot. Volume Down+Power button combination has always been the way to do it on Samsung phones maybe that's why they never incorporate the power button menu option that Google introduce on the Android 9 version.
