There are a lot of great Android screen recorder apps that you can use to record android screen and gameplay.

Many readers were asking for the ways or how to record Android screen for various purposes. If you are a Youtube Content creator, especially if you publish tech-related videos or gameplay videos, this post can help you a lot. There are a lot of android screen recorders but very few of them deserves a place in your app drawer.

So, without any delay, let’s get to our business. Here are Best Android Screen Recorder for Android

AZ Screen Recorder

If you ever watched The Tech Toys videos on Youtube, you may notice that I use to demonstrate directly through recording Android Screen instead of recording through the camera as it is convenient for both viewers and for me. For recording the Android Screen, I use AZ Screen Recorder. The app is very easy to use. With just a tap, the app starts recording Android Screen.

You can even record the 720P HD videos on 60FPS. There is an inbuilt video editor which is very basic. Along with these, there are a lot of other functionality which you would get on AZ Screen Recorder like “Show touches”, Front Camera, Add text, Screen orientation etc. Moreover, you can transfer the recorded video directly to your computer over wifi. This is my favorite Android Screen Recorder App so far. But wait, there are other screen recording apps also.

Another great app to record the Android Screen. This app is really good and provides you a lot of additional features along with recording android screen. Like AZ Screen Recorder, you can record videos on 60FPS but the thing that I found weird is, while the phone has 720p HD display but the app can record 1080P FULL HD videos. The DU Recorder interface is quite intuitive. The floating button has all the controls of recording the screen. You can shake your phone to stop recording.

An additional feature you get with DU recorder is Brushes, Stitch Images, Blur image to hide sensitive information from the video, video editor etc. You can draw anything on the screen while the screen is being recorded. Using this feature, you can connect with your viewers if you are recording any tutorial for your Youtube channel.

Mobizen Screen Recorder

Mobizen Screen Recorder is another great app to record Android Screen. The Floating “M Circle” has all its control. You can record Full HD videos at 60FPS (Depends on Device). With Clean Recording Mode, you can hide all the floating circles, touch pointers, watermarks from the screen. You do get a basic video editor which allows you to add music, split video, trim video. One thing that is missing on Mobizen is the brush. Unlike, DU recorder, you cannot draw anything on the screen.

The thing that makes Mobizen different from any other Screen Recording app is the support for Android 4.4 KitKat. If you are using Android KitKat device, you can use Mobizen to record the Android screen and good thing is, you don’t need to Root your phone. 20% of Android Phones are still running on Android KitKat that’s why this feature makes Mobizen different from other Screen Recording apps for Android.

Game Screen Recorder

Game Screen Recorder is yet another Android screen recorder app to record the Android Screen but wait, as the name suggests. It is developed for recording the gameplay. If you are a Youtuber and publish Game Play Videos, this app can record the gameplay on Android. The app will automatically detect the games installed on your device and the show you on the Home Screen of the app. You can also record other apps by adding other apps and screens of Android. Game Screen Recorder gives you all the basic features like orientation, Resolution, FPS etc.

Google Play Games

Google Play Games is a place where our gaming profile gets saved. We never opened Google Play Games for any purposes. But, do you know, Google Play Games can record the screen of Android? All you need is to press the Red Record button to record the gameplay and if you want to record another screen of Android, just minimize the game. You don’t need to install any third party app to record Android Screen. The Google Play Games screen recorder is very basic and doesn’t give you any features like other dedicated screen recording apps are providing.

  2. Hey Jayant…. Man, you just may be the person that will have the answer to my question…. Soooo. I am playing a game on my tablet. It was a free app… The game is pretty popular, and I am curious…. Can I add a brush stroke to the game screen, of which I am seeing, not needing the opponent to see, using the DU Screen Recorder app also…. What I want to do is when it is my turn to play, make a mark on the screen as a reference point, then be able to scroll the screen in relation to that reference point, and still record this all with an app such as DU Screen Recorder. As the DU app is, it has a brush feature, but what happens when I use that brush(mark) feature, the screen locks and I can’t scroll until that brush(mark) is erased, at which time the screen frees up and then I can scroll, but the mark I made is no longer visible, so I can not use the mark….
