Recording the screen of your mobile/cell phone Samsung Galaxy A20 in a video with Sound can be handy for creating a tutorial or demonstrating to a friend how to perform specific tasks on a Samsung Galaxy A20, saving the video as a file, and then sending or uploading it to YouTube or social media platforms.
Sometimes we would like to capture on video with sound an Instagram story of a friend, a phone chat or video call with a family member to save it as a memento, use it as proof, or create a TikTok movie.
The Samsung Galaxy A20 ships with the Android 9.0 (Pie) operating system, but there is currently no native way built into Android for recording the screen. Therefore, you must use the Game Launcher program from Samsung or third-party applications.

HOW DO I RECORD MY SAMSUNG GALAXY A20 SCREEN?
Screen recording on the Samsung Galaxy A20 can be accomplished in two distinct ways. Let’s learn each one individually.
Initially, we will verify that the screen recording icon is present in the fast access panel of our Samsung Galaxy A20. (If we already possess it, we can proceed to step 5)
To verify it, we open our Galaxy A20 and slide a finger from the top edge of the screen down a few millimeters to reveal the fast panel, which displays quick options such as connecting to a Wi-Fi network, connecting Bluetooth, mute, airplane mode, and so on.
Swipe down again with one finger to view the entire panel, and check if the icon depicted below is there.
If we do not notice the screen recording icon on the fast panel of our Samsung Galaxy A20, we must click the edit symbol, which is generally represented by three vertical dots.
Click “Button order” from the floating menu to modify the order of the quick panel buttons on your Samsung Galaxy A20.
The icons of the settings that we have already defined in the Samsung Galaxy A20 quick panel will appear below, and a blank space will separate the settings icons that we can add to the panel. Next, we search for the screen recording icon, click on it, and drag it to the bottom to add it to the quick panel.
If you do not see the icon for screen recording on your Samsung Galaxy A20 device, it may have been disabled by the manufacturer or is not supported on Samsung Galaxy A20.
We already have the screen recording icon on the Samsung Galaxy A20 quick panel; to begin recording, we have two options: press the volume up and power buttons of the Galaxy A20 at the same time, or unfold the panel quickly by swiping a finger down from the top of the screen and pressing the screen recording icon that we have seen previously.
If this is the first time the Samsung Galaxy A20’s screen has been captured, a message seeking permission to take images and record videos will display. If you decline permission, you cannot record the screen. You can grant permission only this time or every time the app is used.
The second permission it will request is access to the microphone for the “Samsung Capture” app to record sounds. You must grant permission even if you do not wish to capture the microphone’s Sound; we can signal later that the Sound is not recorded.
Next, the application will request permission to access the images, multimedia content, and files on the Samsung Galaxy A20. This does not indicate that the application will use the photos or videos, but rather that it needs this permission to save the movie to the device’s storage.
This phase lets you pick whether the video will be saved without Sound, with system noises, or with system sounds plus microphone recording. Choose the desired option and then click “Start recording.”
A 3-second countdown will be displayed on the Samsung Galaxy A20’s display before the camera begins to record video of anything that occurs on the screen.
To stop the recording, you can either touch the square stop button at the top right of the screen or slide your finger from the top to reveal the notification and quick settings bar and press the red button.
The video will be instantly saved in your Samsung Galaxy A20’s photo gallery. You can locate the image gallery on the home screen; it should have a photo icon, an instant photo icon, or, depending on the version of software installed, the icon of a four-pointed paper star with a different color for each point.
HOW DOES THE GALAXY A20’S SCREEN RECORDING APPLICATION WORK?
- Go to the Google Play Store on your Galaxy A20.
- Then type “screen recording application with audio” into the search field and press enter. Alternatively, visit this Google Play Store URL from a desktop browser.
- Choose one of the offered screen recording applications and click the Install button.
- To record the screen of the Galaxy A20 after installing the Screen Recording application, launch the Screen Recording application and click the start button. Occasionally, these settings can be found on the notification panel itself.
- You have successfully recorded the screen of your Galaxy A20 using our guide.
Suppose the screen recording icon is unavailable, and pushing the volume up and power keys simultaneously do not initiate video recording on the Samsung Galaxy A20. In that case, we must download an application from the application store.
