As the U12+ doesn’t have traditional power and volume buttons, HTC had to get creative when it came to taking screenshots on the phone. Here are two ways to capture things on your screen.

How to take a screenshot on the HTC U12+

    1. Software button
    2. Google Assistant

Software button

Once you’ve found something you wish to capture, just swipe the on-screen navigation buttons to the left and you should see several new icons. Tap on the screen capture button which is represented by an icon of a phone. And that’s it. Your screenshot will then be saved to the device’s gallery.

Google Assistant

Additionally, you can use the Google Assistant to take a screenshot. After locating whichever content you would like captured, you can either long-press on the Home button or say “Ok/Hey Google” to launch the Assistant. From there, you can either say “Take a screenshot” or type the command in using your keyboard.
