The Android OS is almost the same when it comes to certain functions across different smartphones, and one of those functions that stay the same in several devices is the capturing of screenshots. The Moto G 3rd gen. smartphone from Motorola is one we are using currently, and thus, here’s a guide on how to take a screenshot in that phone.
For those who are always using an app for this, you might already be adjusted to that method. But when there is a better and easier way, you should try that – the use of Physical buttons to capture screenshot.
Capturing screenshot on Moto G 3rd gen.
The physical buttons that are to be used here, are the power button and the volume down button. To take the screenshot, you need to be on the particular screen you want to capture, and press two buttons together.
On pressing the power button and volume down button together, the camera shutter sound is heard and the screenshot is captured. You’ll see the progress of that in the status bar as well as in the notification panel.
Once the screenshot is captured, you can share it directly from the option given in notification panel, or tap on the photo to find more options in preview, or just swipe it to left or right to remove the notification. The picture gets saved in the Gallery under Screenshots folder.
The apps usually come to good use when the physical buttons aren’t working well. For any other Moto G tips, follow this page. Also, check out the Moto G 3rd gen. specifications.
