  • Command “OK Google” “Capture A Screenshot”

Method 4: Use Third-Party Apps

Taking the screenshot is not enough, many times you may want to edit it, add some text, etc. Samsung and other Android smartphone brand not just let you capture your screen, but you can also edit the screenshot from the same window.

I never used a LG phone, but as per my research, I was unable to find whether LG phones too let you edit your screenshot or not.

So here I am going to share the alternate method to take screenshots in your LG phone with the option to edit them.

There are many free-to-use third-party screenshots apps for android. You just need to go to the apps store, and install any good screenshot app on your LG phone. Most of these apps also let you edit your captured screenshot.

Where Can You Find Your Captured Screenshot In Your LG Phone?

Simply visit your phone file manager and check for the folder with the name screenshot or something similar. Or you can also go to your gallery, and look for the folder screenshot.

How To Edit Your Captured Screenshot?

I am not sure whether Lg phones also let you edit your captured screenshot or not. But you can use any third-party image editing app to edit your screenshot after capturing them. Or you can also install any third-party dedicated screenshot capturing app, and most of these apps come with the option to edit your screenshot.

Please Keep This in Mind: Given methods to take screenshots are applicable on most of the LG smartphones, including stylo 2, g8 thinq, cricket lg, lg thinq, lg dual screen, g8 thinq, stylus 2 plus, g8x, etc.
