I noticed an icon (seen on the attached image) on the Edit screen that appears after taking a screenshot on my Honor Android phone.

Image resized. Click for full size

I'm unsure of its functionality and couldn't find any information in the user manual or online resources.

Is this icon a feature of Android in general, or is it specific to Honor devices? Any insights would be helpful.

  • Welcome to Android Enthusiasts. I believe it's not a feature of Android in general since the manufacturer can also customize the screenshot editor; both screenshot editors on Pixel 3a and Galaxy M12 look totally different compared to this screenshot.

Its on my Android Note 20 as well. After playing with it, it appears after a screenshot.

If you press it, it highlights all the text on the screen. If you touch any text, it is copied to the clipboard.

I guess the thought is that you can find a caption for the screen shot that you have just made, on the screen.

  • Problem is that on my Honor 50 phone it doesn't do anything useful :( Dunno why
