What you need to know

  • Microsoft Edge Canary on Android now has a screenshot option.
  • The screenshot option appears within the share menu of the browser.
  • To use the feature, you have to be on Edge Canary version

Microsoft Edge Canary on Android can now take screenshots of webpages. The feature is in its infancy right now and is missing some of the functionality it mentions in its own interface. Specifically, you can't edit the screenshots within the browser, even though an Edit icon appears when you take a screenshot. Edge Canary is the most experimental preview version of Edge, so it's normal to run into some bugs and issues.

Microsoft only made Edge Canary available in mid-April, so we haven't seen many new features roll out yet. In the time that I've had with the preview version of Microsoft's browser, I've been blown away by its speed. Hopefully, as testing continues, we'll see new features like this screenshot tool appear. For example, it would be nice to have a scrolling screenshot tool built into Edge.

Many Android phones already have advanced screen capture tools, including the option to take long screenshots. In comparison to those, the current functionality of the screenshot tool in Edge Canary falls short. The browser is still in its early stages of testing, so we could see more advanced features roll out in the future.

So fast
