Are you a newbie content creator trying to monetize through live/recorded gameplay or video tutorials with your Samsung tablet? Finding how do you screen record on a Samsung tablet? Do you want to get around the timing limitations of the inbuilt feature? The article offers you the solution and requisite steps to help with your screen capture requirements.
How To Screen Record On Samsung Tablet?
If you have one of the latest generations of Samsung tablets, you have two ways to do the screen capture. You can either use the inbuilt screen recorder or a third-party application. For older generation tablets, you can do it via applications in the Android ecosystem. Let’s find out the steps involved in either of the cases.
1. Using the inbuilt Screen Recorder
Step 1: Go to the Home screen and access the quick panel by swiping down from the top of the screen.
Step 2: You will spot an icon mentioning the text “screen recorder” that’s highlighted.
Step 3: Since you are using the Samsung screen recorder for the first time, permit the application to use your camera, mic, and access the files.
Step 4: Once screen recording permissions are granted, it will take you to the basic settings page of the recorder. Here, you may select an appropriate option for sound recording and hit the “Start Recording” as highlighted in the screenshot below.
Step 6: After a count of three, a small panel appears in the top right corner. The panel allows you to change colors, draw/write using the pen, access the camera, pause or stop the recording.
That’s all. Once the recording is done, you can access the videos in the gallery.
2. Using a Third-Party Application
If your tab model doesn’t come with an inbuilt screen recorder or if you want to get around the time limitations for screen capture, one can resort to third-party applications available in the Play Store. Users have tons of free applications to explore and choose what works for them.
AZ screen recorder is amongst the best screen recorder applications available in the Google Play Store, with options to upgrade to paid version for additional features. Let’s look at how to capture the screen using the AZ screen recorder app. Go to the play store and download the application.
Step 1: Once you have downloaded, launch the app to start the screen recording process.
Step 2: Allow the requisite permissions.
Step 3: After providing the permissions, you’ll be prompted with AZ Screen Recorder’s floating widget, where you can tap on the “record” button and choose start now.
Step 4: After the count of 3, the screen capturing starts. The screen capture timer and a tool panel appear once you start the capture.
Step 5: You can pause, stop the recording, or access the captured files/settings or stream live on platforms like Facebook & youtube by clicking on the corresponding icon.
The most recent Samsung Galaxy tablets have inbuilt recorders. They are handy for most tablet users. If you happen to carry an older version, a free version of the third-party application will take care of most of your requirements. Some users prefer paid applications to get rid of ads and for their additional features & the sophistication it brings along.
