Scrolling screenshot is way better on Samsung
Just started using this on my S21. Love it.

What makes it better than on the Pixel?

Samsung captures the headers & footers and very long scrolling.
Pixel in scrolling mode loses headers & footers, and pretty limited in length

On Pixel 6? Can you share an example?
Not seeing that on mine. I did have to toggle it on to work in Chrome, which is ridiculous.

You mean an example that it works at all? Works in whatsapp but not Tapatalk for example

The missing wifi toggle is torture. There was a ADB command to bring it back, but only worked on my Pixel 4a and not the 6

I did not try yet the tasker method

I hate the direction that Google is going in with their trying to hide features in the name of "keeping it simple". This Apple-fication of Android is really going against the appeal of Android in the first place. This has been going on for years at this point.

I was referring mostly to the locking down of Android, and Google does make simple stuff harder to do with every new version of Android.
