Adding scrolling screenshots that allow you to capture the entire screen is a major new feature in Android 12, according to 9to5 Google. Google has now quietly added support for scrolling screenshots of Android 12 to Chrome.
When Android 12 comes out at the end of October, the 'Capture more' button in the lower-left screenshot preview won't appear in Chrome. This is because Chrome and other WebView instances are not "standard view-based user interfaces."
That said, Google has been working hard to make scrolling screenshots available system-wide, and now Chrome on Android 12 has scrolling screenshots support without any additional user action. This change is widely available today (the latest version of Chrome 96 is widely available). The media found it on Pixel 6 Pro running the November security patch, as well as Android 12 and Android 12L running the December patch on Google devices.
IT Home has learned that scrolling screenshots work in a fairly straightforward way. Capturing the screen in Chrome now shows "Capturing more" next to the share and Edit ICONS. You'll then be taken to the same full-screen browser, where you can select more (or less) of the current screen. There are options to edit, save and share directly.
After threads of information, a web site is the biggest thing a user wants to keep visually. Providing scrolling screenshots in Chrome should allow people to capture and manage fewer images. In the meantime, we're still waiting for Chrome to enable the new Material You widget.
