Once you've taken a screenshot in Google App, a new bottom bar will appear with four options. These are mentioned below. In addition, users of Samsung Galaxy Note 10 should also see how we can take screenshots on Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+.
- Marking option: When you tap this feature, the Google App screenshots editor offers you three additional options:
- Arise: As its name indicates, it allows you to crop the image.
- Draw: This option is used to write, draw, or draw on the captured screen capture. In addition, the color palette offers a multitude of colors. You can even increase or decrease the size of the brush. Once done, tap the check mark to save your changes.

These are the different features provided by the screenshots editor present in Google App. Although very useful, it seems that a job remains to be done. For example, most of the time, trying to crop functions caused frequent crashes in my Google app. Hopefully these issues will be solved in the next update.
