I have been wanting to write for a while now. Finally, as @teamcoder put out, decided to give up perfection and here it is.

If you wanted to record a tutorial or wanted to create a demo of your app you'd need to capture the screen in real time. Without installing some third-party crappy piece of software this is daunting. So below is one of the easy steps to follow for geeks in you.

Download the platform-tools from below URL if you don't have Android Studio installed.


  • Connect your Android Phone to your computer.

  • Make sure you have selected the option "Use USB for" to "File transfers"image

  • Open the command prompt (Win+R)

  • Enter the below command
    adb shell and press "Enter" keyimage

  • Write the below command to record the screen
    screenrecord /sdcard/download/fileName.mp4image

  • Once you are done with recording the screen, press "Cntrl + C" to stop

  • You can now just browse to the same folder you have given in command and get the fileimage
