The Pixel Watch 2 now takes screenshots with physical buttons; here’s how

Pixel Watch 2

The Pixel Watch 2 adds a few important enhancements to Google’s wearable portfolio. The provision of a tactile shortcut for taking screenshots was one that went fairly unnoticed.
Screenshots can be important for a variety of reasons, but you never think you’ll need them until it’s too late. The Pixel Watch 2 was completely capable of screen captures, but it was all software-based. To take one, open the Watch app on your Android phone and tap the “Take screenshot on watch” button, which is quite cumbersome.

This function is well-executed by the Galaxy Watch series. Simply pressing both buttons on the watch’s side produces a screenshot, which is immediately sent to Google Photos. It’s a smooth procedure that Google is finally catching on to.

In this regard, the Pixel Watch 2 is a significant improvement. To snap a screenshot, hit the crown and recents buttons simultaneously. A short flash indicates that a screenshot has been taken, and the captured image will shrink to the bottom of the display.

Unlike the Galaxy Watch, you must still manually submit a Pixel Watch 2 screenshot to Google Photos or other apps. On your associated phone, a notification will display, which you may touch to upload the screenshot. After that, you’ll have a Pixel Watch 2 screenshot taken using physical buttons rather than software controls.

It’s important to note that you must upload every single screenshot you capture; they will not save on their own. Taking many screenshots in a row will result in a single screenshot. As inconvenient as this is, it is a step in the right direction.
