Screenshot on Android

I’m sorry Application.CaptureScreenshot(Application.persistentDataPath);

it simply does not do anything. It does not save the photo anywhere I can find it. There’s something else I need to be doing here, I don’t know what it is. Maybe there’s something I’m forgetting,
but it works perfectly when running the unity program on my PC. I doesn’t work at all on Android.

Try this; go in

  • Build Settings
  • Player Settings

  • —> Android
  • -----> Subpanel Other settings
  • -------> Write access : Set to External (SDCard)

Application.screenshot(); just doesn’t work for me. you also might want to call the manuallycodedScreenshot inside an iEnumerator.

If someone is experiencing this issue here’s how to fix it:

    Texture2D screencap;
    string screenshotPath; 

void Start() {
        screencap = new Texture2D(Screen.width, Screen.height, TextureFormat.RGB24, false);

screenshotPath = (runningOnPC ? Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.DesktopDirectory)
            : Application.persistentDataPath) + "/TSM_Screenshots/";

void manuallyCodedScreenshot()
        screencap.ReadPixels(new Rect(0, 0, Screen.width, Screen.height), 0, 0, true);

        byte[] screenshotEncodedinBytes = screencap.EncodeToPNG();
        File.WriteAllBytes(screenshotPath, screenshotEncodedinBytes);
