How to Record Your Screen on Samsung Phones

There are typically two ways to record your screen with a Samsung phone. One is using Samsung's built-in screen recorder, and the other is turning to some reliable third-party apps for help.

Using Samsung's built-in screen recorder

Samsung has its solution, unlike the many other Android users who may rely on third-party apps to monitor their screen recording activities. The key is Samsung's built-in application: Samsung Screen Recorder. Here is the complete guide for how to screen record on Samsung. Although we use the Samsung Galaxy A52s as an example, you may use the same techniques with any Samsung phone with a screen recorder.

Step1. Use two fingers to swipe down from the top of the screen to pull out the quick settings panel.

Step2. In your quick settings panel, locate the Screen recorder option. Drag to the bottom of the quick settings and press the “+” button if you can't find it. Add Screen Recorder hidden. Then, tap and open it.

Step3. Choose between recording No Sound, Media Sounds, or Media Sounds and Microphone. While Media sounds and mic also allow you to narrate over the recording video, Media sounds will only incorporate sounds produced by your phone.

Using third-party screen recording apps

The Google Play Store has a wide range of apps for everything, including screen recording applications. However, we cannot provide you with a universal and detailed tutorial for all the screen recording software because every program operates differently. Instead, we will show you how to screen record with - XRecorder in a tutorial, which is on the top of Google's recommended rank.


Step1. Acquire Screen Recorder – XRecorder from the Google Play Store.

Step2. Open the app, then tap the lower "+" button.

Step3. Choosing “Record Video”.

Step4. Now press Start.

Step5. The app will begin counting down 3 seconds before starting to record.

Step6. Press the Stop icon.

Step7. Your phone will save the video. Choices to delete, edit, or share the video will also appear.
