Among the many possible feature updates that have been revealed or rumored for Windows Phone 8, one feature that hasn’t really been talked about is the possibility of a native screenshot feature. Now to be fair, most users could care less about this ability in their device, but as someone who writes and reviews Windows Phone it would certainly be a welcomed feature in the next release for me personally.
WPDang is reporting that the ability to take screenshots directly from the device will be coming in Windows Phone 8 this fall. To take these screencaps it’s being reported that the user will need to press both the Windows and camera shutter button at the same time, which will take the screenshot and store it in the cameras ‘saved’ folder.
Microsoft has neither confirmed nor denied this report, so at this point we’ll need to wait and see for an official word.
