Microsoft Edge Canary for Android now supports long screenshots
The latest build of Edge Canary for Android supports taking long screenshots of websites.
What you need to know
- Microsoft Edge Canary for Android now lets you take long screenshots of websites.
- Chromium has supported this functionality for a while, but it is now in testing for the Edge browser.
- The feature is in a controlled rollout, so you may not see it at this time.
Microsoft Edge Canary for Android can now take long screenshots of websites. Chromium has had the ability to take long screenshots for quite some time, but the option is now making its way to Microsoft's mobile browser. The feature was first spotted by Leo Varela, who shared screenshots and videos of it on Reddit.
Many smartphones have built-in functionality that allows them to take long screenshots, but the implementation can vary from phone to phone. By supporting long screenshots on the mobile version of Edge, Microsoft can bring the same UI across different devices.
A tweet from Varela shows the feature in action. When taking a screenshot, you can drag the bottom of the selection pane down to include more of a website. Edge then creates one long screenshot of your selection.

The feature is available in Microsoft Edge Canary Build 96.0.1050.0. As is the case with other experimental features in Edge, support for long screenshots is part of a controlled rollout. That means you may not see the option even if you're running the latest build of Microsoft Edge Canary on Android.
