October 18, 2011, By Leo Xavier

We know that all the Android fans out there are waiting anxiously for the arrival of Google’s new OS, Ice Cream Sandwich. Everyone is excited to know about all the features that will be available with the OS that has been described by the search giant as that which will be coming with qualities of Gingerbread and Honeycomb operating systems.

Now, we have the latest info related to the upcoming OS. It appears like Google has finally decided to implement native screen capture in the Ice Cream Sandwich.

The new info comes to us courtesy of AndroidPolice. They did some digging around and found out about the feature which will most probably be shown off at the unveiling ceremony of the OS. And yes, we will also get to learn about all the other delicious facts.


As you might already know, screen capture is taken for granted by many rooted and Sense 3.0 users. For those of you who are wondering what it is all about, screen capture gives you the ability to take a snap shot of whatever is displayed on your screen.

According to available info, for enjoying screen capture on upcoming ICS devices you will just have to press both the volume down + power button. Posting your homescreens on Facebook will never be easier.

That’s just one feature. More hidden facts are yet to be known. Luckily, we won’t have to wait too long.

Are you hoping to see some special features that you need when Google finally unveils the OS? Maybe native video (with sound) capture too?
