Android 12 is here in the form of your first Developer Preview. This first version brings more changes of which we are used, including several screenshots related improvements.

For starters, Google continues work on the elongated screenshots, scrolling, in addition to including more options in the screenshot editor. Also, you can slide the preview to one side of the capture you just made to hide it.


Add text and emojis to screenshots

Editor

After taking a screenshot, you can make a few small tweaks to it with the editor included in Android. This editor is quite simple, although it includes the basics: cropping and adding squiggles over the capture. In Android 12, two more tools are added: add emojis and text.

It is still a simple editor, but now you can add any emoji on the system as a stickeras well as text. In the text it is possible to configure the color between a small list, although no other adjustment such as typography or style can be made.

Swipe to hide

A minor change, but one which is appreciated, is that the preview of the screenshot you just took, and which is displayed in the lower left corner, can be hidden by sliding it to the side.

This is how it works in many layers of Android, but not in pure Android 11. You had to wait for it to disappear automatically or point to the X microscope in one of the corners of the preview.

Elongated catches, coming soon

Extend

We were told that it was impossible, to later appear as function for Android 11, finally stayed in the inkwell: the elongated screenshots, scrolling. New version of Android, new hopes that it will officially arrive. The function is not activated by default in the first Android 12 Developer Preview, but it is internally, as you have seen on XDA.

The “bad news” is that at the moment it doesn’t work too well, which, on the other hand, is not too unusual considering that it is a first version in the first Developer Preview. Hopefully this time it does end up reaching the final version in August.
