What’s the best way to share a conversation from WhatsApp or text message in some other conversation? Well, if your guess is taking a screenshot and of the conversation and then sending it over, you are absolutely right. Sometimes when I want to share my conversation with someone on WhatsApp I always take screenshots and then send them over and things rock when the conversation is small.
The complications arise when there are over 2 screenshots that I need to take while scrolling through the conversation. Also making sure that it’s sent in the exact order was a pain and one miss made the entire conversation utter nonsense.
To help in such situations, Samsung launched scrolling screenshots with the Note5 and they continued the feature in Samsung Galaxy S7 where one can take scrolling screenshot of the screen and then send it as one big image file that the person can read in one go. We have already covered the feature for Samsung users and for others, there’s an app for that which brings the feature to any Android phone even without root access. Let’s have a look.

Stitch & Share for Android
Stitch & Share is a great app to get the same functionality and once you install the app and launch it, it will work in the background. In the beginning, the app will give you a small walkthrough as to how the screenshots should be taken in ordered for them to get stitched properly. Just make sure you overlap some portion of the screen in-between screenshots for the app to stitch them correctly.
The best thing about the app is that it works as an independent tool and thus can stitch anything and everything that you can scroll through on your Android. So let me show you how you can take scrolling screenshot of your settings page.
How to Take Scrolling Screenshot
Step 1: Make sure Stitch & Share is running in the background and then open the Android settings. Here make sure you are at the very top and take the initial screenshot.
Step 2: Now scroll down and make sure that one of the elements is overlapping with the previous screenshot and take the second screenshot. Repeat this till you have taken the screenshot of the entire page.
Step 3: Once you are done, you will get a notification from Stitch & Share that the screenshots have been stitched together and you just need to tap on it to open it up.
Step 4: All the screenshots will be arranged there one after the another and the overlapping area helps the app to make sure they are stitched at the right spot. You can even add annotations if you click on the edit button and can be helpful when you wish to hide certain option of your conversation in the screenshot.
Note: If you don’t get the notification to stitch screenshots after you take them you can use the + sign to create one manually by selecting the screenshots from the gallery.
Step 5: Once you are done, tap on the share button and your screenshot will be ready to share. However, keep in mind that the Share url option will actually upload the screenshot to Stitch & Share server and share an online link. If you wish to send or save the image as a file, head over to Share file option and continue.
So that was how you can Stitch & Share screenshot as one scrolling page. The app is free with ads but you can unlock the ad-free version for $1.49 and also get the option to pick your own colors while annotating for $1.99. So try out the app and let us know your views about it.
