How to enable native Screen Recording function for all Samsung Galaxy devices

Samsung phones are known for their super packed features and customization options. The manufacturer packs all the features you can ever find in a smartphone available either via system functions or via third party tools like Good Lock, Galaxy labs, Samsung Themes, custom fonts, custom icon packs, and much more. Not to forget the updated working version of Samsung Theme Park APK for Galaxy devices where you can literally build your own themes. It is the latest Good Lock module. However, we believe Nice Shot is the best and most useful Good Lock plugin. Here’s why.

Nice Shot is an extremely useful Good Lock plugin which is highly ignored. Heck, it is not even listed in the Good Lock container app on some Samsung phones. So you will need to manually add a shortcut to the app on your home screen. Nice Shot gives you native screen recording functionality on your Samsung Galaxy devices. Native Screen Recording  function was teased and then removed from the One UI 1.0 based on Android 9 Pie for some reason. Also, even if the One UI 2.0 (Android 10) for Galaxy phones does have screen recording, it is not even close to the features Nice Shot provides.

Most important feature from Nice Shot in my opinion is the audio input for system and/or mic. So while screen recording you can choose between three audio input options – off, system sounds, system sounds and mic. So if you are a content creator, you can also add a voice over on your videos in real time. Another great function you will find is the option for the video quality. You can choose from high, medium, and low. Nice Shot is not just a screen recording. It also has screen capture function; or more commonly known as a screenshot. You can also choose between png and jpg formats.

Note: For Google Drive links, download to PC and transfer to phone storage. As per our experience, the Nice Shot v1.0.16 works perfectly with all Samsung Galaxy devices. You can also try the version 1.1.04, but is is only 6MB for some reason. So we do not recommend installing it.
