    Man I wish EVERY screenshot I took had the option to do scrolling screenshots. It's super frustrating that I have to be JUST RIGHT on a page for the feature to work.

    Does NOT work for me like 99% of the time. Frustrating bc not ALL apps support it or you have to be JUST RIGHT on the page for the "capture more" to appear.

    Thanks. I've just tried it on multiple long screens - doesn't appear as an option.

    Android 12 might be the buggiest release I've seen them do in years.

    I watched YouTube videos during the beta of it being used on the settings screen(s). Can't do it here.

    I'm getting mixed results with it but was excited to see it in A12. I'm coming from a Note 8 that had the feature because of Samsung including it in their version. I used it ALL THE TIME and absolutely loved it. The one on my P6P is a bit disappointing because it doesn't always give me the option to capture more with my biggest complaint being that it doesn't capture very long of a shot compared to the one on my Note 8. That on would scroll seemingly forever and capture it all, on any screen on my phone.

    Hopefully Google will update the feature and make it more reliable and add longer shots as well.

    There are a BUNCH of fixes I hope they'll do to 12

    Here's another nag I have with this feature which never was an issue on my Samsung Note 8 because they got it right 4 years ago.

    If you do a screenshot, and then choose to capture more, it saves the initial small screenshot image and then adds another long one. Makes no sense at all and just wastes space. So then, I have to weed through the screenshots I saved and figure out which ones are the actual long ones I wanted saved and which are the small ones I didn't want saved. Seems like common sense to me that it wouldn't save 2 but what do I know.

    Same thoughts here, would be nice if EVERY screenshot had the "capture more" option.

    OP I did not realize that the AI weighs in on the decision to give the option to take a scrolling screenshot. I saw the option for a scrolling screenshot the other day and thought it was just a behind the scenes feature drop lol. Why wouldn't Google just leave the option there all the damn time?

    OK, this scrolling screenshot (or longshot) fail is frickin' driving me nuts! Since my Note 8 had it built into Samsung's UI, I used it ALL THE TIME for webpages, online orders, UI info backup and lots of other stuff, for 4 whole years and it ALWAYS worked. Not having a reliable way to consistently take a long screenshot on my P6P is making me look for other apps but they all seem to have their own issues.

    I REALLY hope this gets fixed in a update soon!

    I think it's a fake feature.

    Using a Pixel 6, is anyone able to capture a screenshot greater in length than that originally shown? In other words, if I take a screenshot, I get the option to capture more of the webpage and I'm able to pull down as far as the image is displayed on my screen but no more. On my S21U, I'm able to keep capturing more and more of the webpage until I've saved a very long screenshot. I can't seem to do the same on my P6P. Am I missing something? Thanks!

    Nope, you're not missing anything. I came from my Note 8 of 4 years and absolutely loved Samsung's built in long screenshot feature. That's why we can't do it on our new Pixels, because Samsung had their own thing and now it's half-baked into Android.

    Hopefully, Google will eventually get it right but who knows.

    not quite sure I understand the issue and never tried before but I just did a screen shot of Fox News using power/volume down button. At the bottom I get a "capture more" option. If I click on that I get screen where I can drag down to highlight the entire long article and ads. It then gives me an option to save. I then go into my screenshot folder and I can zoom in to see larger text and it also gives me the option to use lens to search. Is this what you guys are talking about?

    Best... Steve

    I am able to do the same thing. But, I'm only able to capture the screenshot to the extent it appears on my screen, if that makes sense. If the webpage is longer than that, I'm unable to continue to capture the rest of the webpage using this tool. I'm probably not doing a good job of explaining this.

    I'm in the middle of a lengthy article and am trying to capture 3 or 4 pages as a screenshot to share. When I take a screenshot on my P6P, I'm only able to capture a maximum of about a page of what I'm trying to copy...I can only scroll down so far and it stops. When I do the same thing using my S21U, same article, I'm able to hit the capture button over and over to capture as much of the article as I want so that the screenshot is as long as I want it to be. I don't seem to be about to do the same with the Pixel. It's not a big deal but thought I'd ask here in case I was just missing something obvious.

    This what I got when I did the screen capture with the "more" option.
