How To Screenshot Netflix

Are you trying to screenshot on Netflix but unable to take the screenshot? Then in this post, I am going to tell you how you can take the screenshot on Netflix.

Quick Answer

To screenshot Netflix you have to use any third party app or web tools. To screenshot Netflix on Android use XRecorder app, for IOS use AirShou, for windows use any screenshot browser addon, and for MAC use Apowersoft Screenshot.

By default, Netflix doesn’t allow users to take screenshots to protect their content to make copies, but there are many third-party screen capturing software applications which can let you capture a screenshot on Netflix. All the different devices have separate third-party apps to screenshot Netflix.

So in this post, I am going to tell you step by step how to capture the Netflix screen for different OS.

How to screenshot Netflix On Android?


You can’t screenshot Netflix on your Android smartphone with the default screenshot feature, which is pressing volume down and power button together.

To screenshot Netflix on Android, you have to use any third-party app. There are many apps for this work, but not all the screenshot apps will be able to take the screenshot.

Below I am going to mention one such app which will let you screenshot on Netflix, but you are free to search and use any other apps as per your choice.

  • Go to Play Store.
  • Search for the XRecorder app and install it.
  • Open the XRecorder app.
  • When you will open the app for the first time, it will ask for permission, so please allow the permission “Allow Display Over other apps“.
  • Open Netflix, and play any title which you want to capture.
  • Tap on the XRecorder icon, which will look like a Camera.
  • Tap on the Briefcase Icon.
  • Select the Screenshot from the given options.
  • Tap on the Screenshot Icon.
  • You are done, you can find your screenshot in your file manager under the “XRecorder” folder.

How to screenshot Netflix On IOS (IPad or iPhone)?


Like Android, there is no way to capture Netflix with your default IOS screenshot feature, so you have to download and use any third-party app.

While researching, I got to know about a third-party app called “AirShou,” which can let you screenshot Netflix on IOS, but you can’t find this app in the apps store, you have to install it from any external apps store.

You can also try different screen capturing apps from the app store; may be any of them work.
