Taking screenshots when screenshots are banned

Android now lets apps block screenshots but some times it might be annoying when you desperately need something captured for reference (or to tell the world). Apple Music, for instance, had banned screenshots so I couldn’t quickly share tracks from there.

In such situations, you can just press and hold the ‘Home’ button to call the Google Assistant, and click ‘Share screenshot’ from the Assistant.

This bypasses the restriction set by the app, and you get your screenshot instantly.
