I love the new screen recording feature, but I'm frustrated that every recording has to end with me pulling down the top menu to end it. What I mean is that this action is included in the recording.

Is there any way to end a screen recording other than pulling down that menu and hitting the button? Some kind of shortcut that cuts it off automatically?

(I'm on a pixel 4.)

  • Is your device rooted? Are you OK with a paid app, if not rooted?

  • Not rooted. Was kinda hoping the OS just had a shortcut built-in.... Commented Dec 13, 2020 at 2:53
  • No. I have a Pixel 4a and searched a lot. No luck. Rooted means are ruled out. So you have only app options left. This app looks promising, but screen recorder shortcut is a premium feature
