This guide will explain several simple and easy to understand ways to save the popular Clash of Clans game on Android smartphones and tablets. There are multiple ways to do this, and for all Clash of Clans fans who want to share replays or make how-to videos, we’ll cover three of the easiest but different options below.
One of the most popular things to do on YouTube lately is to record yourself playing video games and upload it for millions of users to watch. It is an increasingly popular form of entertainment, perfect for one of the most popular mobile games on the planet, Clash of Clans.
A big update for Clash of Clans is coming soon, probably in the first few weeks of November, which we detailed above. Meanwhile, those who want to record Clash of Clans games, combat attacks and more on Android will want to try a few easy steps outlined below.
Recording what’s shown on our smartphones or tablets hasn’t always been the easiest task. Typically, users need to power up their Android device (like Jailbreaking an iPhone) and install a few 3rd party apps, then download a screen recording app from the Google Play Store.
However, as the idea of recording our screens becomes more popular, the options and ways to do it become easier than ever. We’ll show users three different ways to save Clash of Clans on Android, starting with the easiest, as long as you have the latest update to the Google Play Games app.
Most Android smartphones and tablets come with Google Play Games. An app made by Google to sync game saves and information, earn rewards, track progress and similar to Game Center on iOS. Google Play Games this week received a much needed update This added the ability to record the game as well as simultaneously record the user playing the game using the front camera.
Make sure you have downloaded or updated the latest Google Play Games and then launch the app and find the game you are looking for. In this case, it would be Clash of Clans. Find it inside Google Play Games, select that game and tap save instead of hitting the big “Play” button.
Clash of Clans will launch from the Google Play Games app with an overlay showing the front camera. A countdown timer will start, giving users time to prepare or enter Clan Wars, followed by recording. For now this is limited to 720p HD or 480p to save space. Here’s how simple it really is.
From here, users can end the Clash of Clans recording, save instantly or upload to YouTube instantly with one tap. Users can also edit and trim parts of the video with ease. This is one of the best ways to record Clash of Clans and add it to YouTube, but the record button is not yet visible for everyone in the app. Make sure you have the latest version of Google Play Games and are ready.
Samsung Game Recorder+
Given that Samsung is one of the most popular smartphone and tablet manufacturers on the planet, this had to make our list. Samsung has a relatively new app called “Game Recorder+” and it does exactly what you think, but with more features than most.
With Samsung’s Game Recorder, users can open the app, launch a game, and then slide the pop-up circle to the top of the screen to change settings, control the volume, adjust which audio is recorded (game sound and sound from the microphone), and there’s even the option to record full 1080p video.
Just like Google Play Games, Samsung’s app allows users to instantly upload videos directly to YouTube if they want, provided they sign in from the apps settings menu. This actually proved for me the best, easiest and smoothest way to save game footage on Android, but it’s limited to Samsung devices only. However, millions of Galaxy S4, Galaxy S5, Galaxy S6, Note 4/5 and Galaxy Tab owners worldwide can use this method.
Give it a try today and enjoy easily recording Clash of Clans with your Samsung device and instantly uploading videos directly to YouTube.
ADV Screen Recorder
There are countless apps on the Play Store that offer some sort of screen recording feature, but most of them are missing a feature or two, costly with in-app purchases to unlock their full potential, or simply outdated and outdated. access.
ADV Screen Recorder is none of the above. It’s what I found to be the most complete screen recording app on the Play Store, and it’s completely free. No purchases, no ads, no nothing. It just works and works incredibly well. It records with two different engines, works great on almost all new Android devices, has a pause feature and is completely hidden from the audience.
You just have to start the app and ready to save. To add a timer, edit the settings or set the recording to your liking, we recommend that you go to the settings by tapping the three dots at the top of the screen. Then from there, tap the round “capture” logo at the top, go to the home page and users will see a record button and a close icon in the top right corner of their device. From here, this is an overlay waiting for users to launch an app.
Open Clash of Clans, hit the save button and it will disappear. It doesn’t show it’s saved but it is. From here users can record whatever they want, pause with a tap, then just click again near the top right corner (nothing will be shown on the screen) and it will instantly stop recording. Users will have a file that they can later share, edit or upload to YouTube.
ADV has many advanced options, some additional controls for volume and microphone, and it works pretty well. Personally, Samsung’s option is my favourite, I use it on the Galaxy Note 5, but for those without Samsung we recommend trying Google Play Games and then ADV for more options.
Again, these are just a few of the many different ways to record screen on our Android devices, but here are a few that we recommend as the best possible options currently available. Those who want to record Clash of Clans gameplay on Android should try any of these three today and enjoy sharing these replays with friends or subscribers on YouTube.
