Pixel 2 / Pixel 2 XL Screenshot Methods:

In the post below, I’ll share with you 3 different methods you can easily use to take screenshots on your Google Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL device.

  • Press and Hold the Power and Volume Down Button at the same time in less than a second
  • You will get the screen shot immediately.

NB: Using the manual process by hand to take Screen shots on Pixel 2 /XL is quite straight to the point, but, requires using both hands.

Which means you have to position the smartphone in your left hand in order to reach the POWER BUTTON using your index finger and also the VOLUME DOWN BUTTON using your middle finger.

Again, if not done simultaneously, you may not get the screen shot in just one trial. Thus, using other easy convenient methods becomes a good option. 

Since, there are other cool ways of taking screen shots on Google Pixel 2/ XL rather than using the Hardware key option above, which usually results in missed screen shots.

There are other ways to go about it. And that is by using smart gestures apps. One of such apps in Google Playstore, is the Screenshot Easy app.

Second Method:

When you tell Google Assistant to take a screen shot by using voice as in: “Ok, Google! Take a Screenshot”,  it will reciprocate the voice command by taking a screen shot of your current screen.

You can share the screen shots with your friends on Social Networks or Edit it.

But, the down side is that, you can’t have your screen capture in side of your phone Gallery.  You can only share it, to your friends on Social Network after which it gets lost.
