How to get the Android P screenshot editor on any Android device

Yesterday, we got out first taste of Android P and the plethora of changes and new features. Opinions on the revamped design are very divided, but one feature, in particular, has received unanimous praise. Stock Android finally has a built-in screenshot editor. With Android Oreo on only 1.1% of devices, Android P is even further away for most people. The good news is almost anyone can get the new screenshot editor on their phone.

The screenshot editor is called “Markup” and it’s actually a separate app that opens when you tap the “EDIT” button. XDA member Quinny899 has ported the APK and it should work on any 64-bit Android device and even some 32-bit devices. It will probably work on your phone. Here’s how to get it up and running on your device.

  1. Download the APK from this thread
  2. Install the APK like you normally would
  3. Take a screenshot and tap SHARE
  4. Select Markup from the Share menu
  5. Edit the screenshot with the new tools
