While the built-in screen recorder can be used immediately, we suggest you take a little time setting it up so that the output will be better than when you have to make adjustments after recording. Here's how you do it:

    You have to swipe down from the top of the screen with two fingers to do that.

  2. Tap and hold Screen recorder icon.

    This will bring you to the Screenshot and screen recorder settings screen.

  3. Set up the Sound.

    In the Screen recorder section, tap Sound. Choose if you want to record Media sounds or Media and microphone sounds.

  4. Choose better video quality.

    Tap Video quality and choose High (1080p), which is a Full HD resolution.

  5. Set up Selfie video size.

    You just have to drag the slider to the right until you got the right size of the selfie video which will also appear in your screen recordings.

  6. Start recording.

    Close the settings page and then pull down the Quick settings panel again. From there, tap the Screen recording icon and your phone will start recording your screen.

FAQ’s

  1. How do I find the video recordings on Galaxy S22?

    One of the concerns we've received about this feature is that some users find it difficult to locate the video file or the recording. Well, there are actually a couple of apps you can use to find it. The first app we suggest is the Gallery because your pictures and videos will automatically be organized by date.
    So if you just finished recording, most probably, the video file will appear as the first file when you open the gallery. From there, you'll have an option to edit it using your phone's built-in video editor, which is embedded in the camera.
    The second app you can use is the My Files. You just have to open the Samsung folder from the app drawer and then tap My Files. Select Internal storage and tap DCIM. Find and tap the Screen recordings folder and you should be able to see the video in there.

  2. How can I rearrange Quick Settings icon to easily access the screen record icon?

    You can actually edit the Quick panel layout and move the icons around depending on how often you use them. Place all the icons of the services you often use on the first page so that it's easier to find them.
    To do that, swipe down from the tops of the screen with two fingers, and tap the More options icon at the top-right corner of the screen. Tap Edit buttons so your phone will allow you to move the icons around. Tap and hold the screen record icon until you can move it around, then place it somewhere you can easily find and access. Don't worry, other icons will move automatically to give way to the icon you're currently holding.


  3. Why is there a black screen somewhere in my video recording?

    Samsung and Google made sure that the users' privacy are well-protected. While the built-in screen recorder can capture almost everything, there are certain screen where it doesn't have permission to record.
    For instance, if at some point you were prompted by your phone to enter your security code while recording, it will result in a black screen but the service will still continue recording. That portion where you enter your code will be blacked out. The same thing goes if you stream paid videos such as Netflix and other premium streaming services.
    There are however, third-party screen recording app you can use to be able to recording everything on your screen no matter what it is, but most of the time, you have to pay for them to use the full features.
