About Screen Recording feature in One Plus 7T

OnePlus 7T is loaded with a ton of new and beneficial features. One of the most interesting features being the “screen recorder”. Before OnePlus, brands like Huawei and Apple have already provided this functionality in their smartphones. In this device, a native screen recorder feature is inbuilt into the interface.

Using it, a user can record whatever is displayed on the screen. This is a useful feature when you are providing advice to troubleshoot a system or to record something for personal or professional use like audio recording etc.

Ways to use the new screen recording feature

One Plus 7T presents new settings that allow users to set the framerate for screen recordings to 15 fps, 24 fps, 30 fps or 60fps based on their own choice and requirements. OnePlus Screen Recorder can’t be found in the app drawer. You would need to access the new settings by pressing the tiny ‘cog’ icon.

This icon is displayed on opening the “Screen Recorder Overlay”.  In order to stop recording, a user has to swipe down the notification shade and stop/ pause recording through the notification panel. It is quite instinctive to use the elegant screen recording options provided by One Plus 7T.

Steps to use the screen recording mode

  • Swipe down on the notification panel two times to see the fast toggle menu.
  • Now choose the Screen Recorder feature.
  • Choose the “Gear” icon that pops up on the display screen to fine-tune inbuilt recording options.

You can either calibrate the screen recorder settings to your requirements or record at the native resolution of your phone. You can even choose the bit rate of the recording. A high bit rate results in a larger file and vice versa. If you want to do voice recording, then select “Microphone audio” option. This lets a user record a voice as well as the device screen simultaneously.

  • Once you have chosen your desired screen recorder settings, you now need to tap the red Record button present on the overlay to begin a recording.
  • At any time, you want to stop the recording, you can tap the stop button. This will save the video file to the gallery on your phone.


OnePlus is known for adding meaningful functions and features to its OxygenOS. The native screen recording also does the same.  With these steps, you can easily and quickly perform screen recording in your One Plus 7T device.
