How to record on-screen activity on Android Lollipop smartphones with no root and no time limits
This method is free, does not require root privileges, and unlike our previous article on the topic, the resulting videos are watermark-free, and they also come with no time limitations. Best of all, it's all very easy to set up, as it only requires you to download an app and push a few buttons.
Step 1. Go to the Google Play Store and perform a search for 'Lollipop Screen Recorder'. Alternatively, you can check head on to this link directly.
Step 2. Download and install the app.
Step 3. Select the resolution at which you want the video to be captured. By default, the app goes for the native screen resolution, but you can choose to go lower if you want to record longer videos while keeping the size in check.
Step 4. You can also choose to record the audio using your phone's microphone. This could come in very handy when shooting game walkthroughs or any other instructional videos.
Step 5. Press the camera button located in the upper right corner. The app will now record your screen activity.
Step 6. When you're done, drag down to reveal the notification screen, and hit the stop button.
Step 7. Your video is now ready to go. No watermarks, no time limitations, no root access. Neat huh?
