Ultimate Guide to Screen Record on Samsung Galaxy S23

Recording your screen can be incredibly helpful for creating tutorials or showing someone how to perform specific tasks on your smartphone. Once you’ve recorded the video, you can easily send it to others or upload it to a platform such as YouTube and social media networks.

Screen recording in smartphones is typically carried out through the inbuilt camera application. In this post, we will teach you how to screen record on Samsung Galaxy S23 series. Read on for more detailed instructions.

What is Screen Record and how does it work?

Screen record is a smartphone feature that lets you record your device’s action. Modern iOS and Android smartphones are capable of screen recording using the built-in camera application. That said, you can record everything on your screen and even use the front camera to record yourself.  Such is a handy tool for creating tutorials or sharing gameplay footage on your smartphone. 

To use screen recording on a smartphone, you typically need to access the screen recording feature through the device’s settings or quick access menu. Once you have started recording, the smartphone will capture everything that appears on the screen, including any sounds or music that is played.

Some smartphones also allow you to use the front-facing camera to record yourself while you’re recording the screen. This is helpful if you’re creating a tutorial or want to include a reaction or commentary to what’s happening on the screen.

After you’ve finished recording, the video file will be saved to your phone’s internal storage or an external storage device if one is connected. You can then share the video file with others or upload it to your preferred video-sharing platform.
