Method 1: Using Physical Buttons

This method is the oldest and the most popular way to take a screenshot. I think it has been present since Android Cupcake, which was Android 1.5!

This method works on Android phones from all Android manufacturers. So, if you want to take a screenshot on your friend’s phone, you can use this method to take a screenshot.

Follow these steps to take a screenshot using Volume Buttons on OnePlus 8.

  2. Press the Power and Volume Down Buttons Simultaneously.
  3. You will see a flash animation on your OnePlus 8, and then a small window will appear with a few options such as to share, edit or delete it.

Google Assistant is an AI assistant from Google. Google Assistant can do a lot of tasks; taking a screenshot of the current screen is peanuts for it.
