Taking a screenshot on an Android smartphone isn’t now a big deal for anyone. It’s something we do every day on our smartphones. But, what if you want to record your Android phone screen? To overcome this, most Android smartphones are coming with a built-in screen recorder. The problem is that most built-in screen recorders don’t let users record audio along with capturing the screen. In this article, I’m coming up with a solution.
I have an Android smartphone that has a built-in screen recorder. It works great. But, the problem is that it doesn’t allow me to record the screen with internal audio. What actually it does, records the screen on mute mode without any kind of audio.
When you’re recording gameplay or a tutorial video, you’ll also want to record the internal sound along with the screen capture. And this article will guide you on how to record your Android phone screen along with the internal audio.
Here’s How to Record Android Screen With Internal Audio
If your built-in screen recording isn’t letting you record internal audio along with screencast, there’s nothing to worry about it. There are many Android apps available on the Google Play Store which allow you to record your Android phone screen along with the internal sound.
I’m right now using XRecorder, a screen and video recorder app by InShot Inc. This app allows me to record my Android phone screen with audio. Whether you want to record gameplay or any video, this Android screen recorder will help you. Let’s see how it works:
- First of all, install XRecorder from Google Play Store on your Android smartphone.
- As soon as you will open it, it will ask for different permissions like Camera, Audio, etc. Allow them.
- Now, tap on the Record icon.
- It will open a dialogue box saying XRecorder will start capturing everything that’s displayed on your screen. Tap the ‘Start Now’ button’. You can also check the ‘Don’t show again’ option if you don’t want to see this popup every time you start recording.
The XRecorder will immediately start recording the screen of your Android phone along with internal audio. If anytime you want to record the screen on mute mode without any kind of audio or sound, just turn off the Microphone from the Tools option.

XRecorder by InShot is however the best option to record your Android phone screen with audio but if for any reason you’re looking for some alternatives, here they are:
