Taking screenshots, or capturing a photograph of the current display on your Samsung Galaxy S9, is a crucial feature of any modern smartphone or tablet.
The good news is that this capability is built right into Android 11 and One UI 3.1, so there’s no need to download any third-party apps to get it.
You can share a WhatsApp chat, Tinder profile, Instagram story, Facebook photo, or video clip from your device’s storage by taking a screenshot.
How to screenshot on Samsung S9
These are the easy steps you need to take to take a screenshot on your Samsung Galaxy S9:

Start by opening the app, website, or chat room that you wish to capture a screenshot of on your Samsung Galaxy S9.
There are two ways to take a screenshot on the Samsung Galaxy S9: the standard Android method, which involves pressing the power and volume down keys at the same time, and
Samsung’s own system, which involves swiping the palm of your hand from the right side to the left (or vice versa) of the screen. Depending on the software version you’re using, you might not have access to this feature.
First, you’ll need to enable the “Move palm to capture” option in the settings before you can use this gesture to take a screenshot.
