Screenshots can prove to be useful when one needs to save information locally, but they’re most handy when it comes to sharing what you’re seeing. Screenshots can prove to be very useful when we need to save information locally, but they’re most handy when it comes to sharing what you’re seeing. Scrolling screenshots are a feature that allows users to capture any lengthy article, message thread or anything else that doesn’t fit in a standard screenshot. Unfortunately, Google has confirmed that it won’t be bringing the feature any time soon.  It is one of the most requested features in stock Android. Sadly, though, Google thinks it’s “infeasible” to bring this into Android as an OS.

We’ve noticed an Android user has started bringing this to Google’s attention back in May 2018 and re-opened a new case in January this year. Despite the case being backed by other users, the company initially deferred the request to a future release, before simply declaring it won’t work on it because it is ‘infeasible’.  It is also surprising that Android doesn’t natively support scrollable screenshots, while several manufacturers have implemented it as early as two years ago. What’s even more astounding is Google’s unwillingness to work on standardizing a feature across all devices, something it usually likes doing.

However, for whatever reason, Google seems to think this is something it can’t natively adopt in Android as an operating system. Our sole theory as to why this would be the case is mainly because of how screenshots are taken in “stock” Android. Instead of having a prompt appear on the screen, Google has opted to defer those actions to the notification tray. To that end, it would be slightly difficult to implement a scrolling screenshot in Google’s version of Android.
