Samsung A21s is a popular smartphone that comes with a lot of features, including the ability to screen record.
The screen recording feature can come in handy in multiple ways, especially when you are recording a tutorial on your device or capturing a gameplay that you wish to share later.
However, a lot of users do not know the steps to do that. Hence, in this article, we will walk you through how to screen record on Samsung A21s.
How To Screen Record On Samsung A21s
The steps for how to screen record on Samsung A21s is easy enough. There are a couple of steps to follow and we have discussed them in this section.
Step 1: To screen record, you need to access the Quick Settings panel. For that, swipe down the screen from the top and you will get a list of small icons with different functions.

However, sometimes it may not be that easy.
A lot of users complain that they cannot find the screen recording option in the Quick Settings panel and that is because, oftentimes, the option isn’t there on default but, you have to add it.
But, not to worry since in the next section, we have shown you how you can add the screen recording option in the Quick Settings panel.

Step 1: Go to the Quick Settings panel by dragging down your screen. Once you are on the panel, tap on the three-dot icon on the top right corner.
Step 2: Next, tap on Button order from the floating menu. You will see different icons of settings you can add to the panel.
Step 3: From there, you have to drag and drop the Screen Recorder icon to the Quick Settings panel. Just drag it down until it gets added to the panel.
That’s it! You can use the previous steps to record your screen.
I Still Can’t Screen Record
In some cases, even if you follow the steps and try to screen record by enabling the feature, it may not happen. There could be multiple reasons behind that.
- Firstly, it could be because you have an outdated OS. In case your Samsung A21s is running on an outdated operating system, you may not be able to screen record.
Hence, to avoid this problem, you have to update your software to the latest version. Go to your settings and check if there are any recent updates available.
- You also may fail to record your screen due to app restrictions. Not all apps allow screen recording and especially sensitive apps such as video streaming apps or banking apps do not allow you to record your screen because they wish to protect the data shown on the screen.
- Thirdly, you may fail to record your screen due to device compatibility issues. Although Samsung A21s normally allows users to record their screen, sometimes certain devices may not allow it due to internal issues. Some internal bug could be restricting it or there is some issue you cannot identify.
Either way, if you are having trouble recording your screen on Samsung A21s, one thing you can do is download a third-party app for screen recording from Google Play Store.
Although, we do not normally recommend using third-party apps since they can be harmful to your device, you can use one if you are desperate to get a video of your screen.
Go for an app that is highly rated and not a shady app with very little reviews.
What To Do Next?
Once you are done recording your screen, you can then edit it and share from your phone. On your gallery app, you can trim the video, add music or text, and adjust the volume.
If you wish to do additional editing, you can download a third-party video editing app that will give you more features.
Or you can transfer it to your desktop and edit it further on your desktop.
Next, to share it, all you have to do is tap on the Share icon on the galley and send it to any platform you wish.
You can also back it up on Google Drive so that you do not lose it in case you accidentally delete the video from your phone.
These were the steps for how to screen record on Samsung A21s.
The steps are easy to follow and once you know how to do it, you will soon realize that the screen recording feature can come in handy in multiple ways.
