Google app adds built-in screenshot-editing tools


Last April, Google started testing the ability to take and edit screenshots in the Google app. However, the feature never officially rolled out to all users. Now that it has been almost a year, Google is finally ready to make the feature available to everyone. Version 7.21 of the app adds editing tools for screenshots.

Cropping is as you’d expect: a box with 4 handles at each corner lets you snip only a portion of the screenshot. The drawing feature, meanwhile, lets you scribble atop the screenshot in up to 6 colors. It’s simple editing stuff, of course, but it’s cool that Google can offer these extra tools when it knows you’re taking a screenshot.

To enable the feature, go to the Google app settings > Accounts & privacy > toggle on “Edit and share screenshots.” All you have to do is take a screenshot like you normally would and if you’re in the Google app the tools will appear. Easy as that.
