I'm running twilight and screenshots end up being red.

I would like a way to detect the screenshot event and disable twilight before the actual screen capture.

My device is not rooted. But I'm open to rooting.

Is this possible?


It is possible with Macrodroid automation app (free upto 5 macros) and real easy to learn

I modified a macro to take screenshots on shaking and added your Twilight app

enter image description here

Shaking the device takes shots (Trigger)

First action is Killing Twilight app ( requires root ) - alarm , pause, take screenshot, pause (adjustable for the time you think you would take a screen shot), launch Twilight app

Constraints -run this macro only when screen is on - so that you don't take screenshots while device is in pocket

After taking the screenshot you will be directed to Twilight page and not the page you were on - you need to switch to previous app

Edit: Here's a gif that shows Twilight being killed, screenshot taken and Twilight enabled on the Macro above

Go ahead and root, if you want this feature !

  • Tweaked the earlier post after installing it and verifying. Twilight app seems to have a didn't behaviour so changed the macro – beeshyams Jul 6 '17 at 8:36
  • Since you were ready to root for this, tested and posted gif to show you that it works – beeshyams Jul 7 '17 at 11:40
  • Did you get to try it out ? – beeshyams Aug 3 '17 at 6:31
