The Google App (Beta) has begun offering the option to edit or share when taking screenshots within the Google Feed, Search Results and Chrome custom tabs.
For users on the Google App Beta Channel (V7.21) the option for native screenshot editing and sharing is now showing once a toggle is switched in the Google App. To find the switch, open the Google App, then go to Accounts & privacy and scroll to the bottom. Once selected any screenshots taken in the Google Feed, Search Results and Chrome custom tabs.
Once a screenshot is taken, the first instance will ask if you want to participate and then ask for permission to access photos, media and files. If you say yes and allow permission you’ll be offered the option to edit or share next time you take a screenshot.
The edit tools allow you to crop, or annotate/draw on your screenshot. Once you hit Finished or the Tick you can then share your screenshot.
Not a bad piece of functionality for those who like taking screenshots. Unfortunately it’s not available on more screens, but for a first effort it’s pretty good.
