Recently Microsoft released Dev and Canary versions for Edge on Android. Thanks to the new unified codebase, Edge now picks up features and changes from Chrome on Android. On that part, it has got a Screenshot feature. It’s actually a Screenshot Editor, but the editing part isn’t working right now.
A few days back, we covered Chrome on Android has natively got the ability to take long screenshots. While it’s a little too early to expect that feature to show up in a development version of Edge, you can take screenshots of web pages for sure, as of now.
You don’t need to enable any flags. The option is available out of the box by default in the Canary version.
If you’re already familiar with taking screenshots in Chrome on Android, this is a pretty straightforward process. Here is how you can get started.
Taking Screenshots in Microsoft Edge on Android
- Ensure you’re using Edge Canary for Android 92.0.880.0, while you’re on the current page
- Tap on the Share icon at the bottom
- In the Share Sheet, select Screenshot,
- Edge provides Edit, Delete, Save and Share options
- As we said above, the Edit option isn’t enabled right now, you can choose options to save the screenshot to your device or share the image via apps available in the share menu.
Note: When you proceed to save the image, Edge asks your permission to access storage on your device to download files, allow it.
If you use the Edge Canary version on Android and Windows 10, here is some good news for you.
If you’re signed with the same Microsoft Account on the above-said devices with sync enabled, Edge now allows you to share pages with the devices.
Some users have this rolled out, check if you’ve “send pages to your devices” option present in the context menu on desktop and Share menu on Android.
