Xiaomi, as we all know uses a modified version of stock Android Known as MIUI. Even though it is heavily skinned and has a lot of additional apps and features which most people don’t use, some functions offered by the MIUI are extremely useful. In fact, few things offered by MIUI are not even available in the stock version of Android.

One such interesting and useful feature present in MIUI versions 8 and above is the scrolling screenshots On Xiaomi. Everyone knows about the normal screenshot option, just hold your volume down and power buttons together and the screen you are currently in will be captured. However, this is not useful every time.

For instance, you might want to send a screenshot of a specific part of your chat with someone. In case if it does not fit into a single screen, you usually take multiple screenshots and then share them individually. But this might not be ideal and you cannot always keep taking a lot of screenshots On Xiaomi Phones

So, if you are using a Xiaomi device and are on the MIUI version 8 and above, then you are lucky because you can take scrolling screenshots on your device. This is similar to a normal screenshot but instead of a single screen, you can now capture continuous screens by scrolling through your device.
