How to Record Screen on Redmi Note 7 Pro, Redmi 7, Redmi K20, and Other Devices Running MIUI 10

Redmi Screen Recording

Stock Android still does not have native video recording capabilities but Android OEMs have started building this feature into their skin. Xiaomi has also started including native screen feature on its devices like the Redmi Note 7 Pro, Poco F1, Redmi K20, Mi 9, Redmi 7, and others.

Most of these phones did not ship with screen recording feature initially but the company added the feature via software updates. The good thing is that the Screen Recorder app in MIUI 10 is pretty feature-rich. It comes with a plethora of useful options including the ability to record system sounds or audio from the microphone, change the recording resolution, and more.

If you own a Redmi or Xiaomi handset and are looking to use the screen recording feature, follow the guide below.
