Android 12's screenshot editor is getting a lot better

Android's native screenshot editor has always been underequipped to serve the needs of the fast-fingered who want to share a receipt or an instant meme. Why force yourself to use multiple editing apps when you could just use one provided to you right there an then? Some improvements brought about by Android 12, however, may bring some people into the fold.

Android 11 tweaks the screenshot Markup interface and adds a delete button

Android P's Developer Preview 1 introduced one feature that we'd all wanted for a long time: screenshot editing. It started when you took a screenshot by offering an Edit button, then by picking the new Markup app, it let you edit the image easily: crop it, annotate it, highlight parts of it, then save it to share. With P DP2, the functionality is improving on all fronts.

Google app beta's screenshot editing and sharing popup is now working in other apps for some

For those who edit a lot of screenshots, an on-demand editor can be a godsend. It's one of my favorite things about my Galaxy S8+. Google recently added the option for a quick editor and sharing options to pop up when screenshots were taken in the Google app beta, but it looks like that functionality is spreading to other apps as well now.
