It is unfortunate to see that contemporary phones

The Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite are unlikely to ever support native screen recording.

The Xiaomi Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite might well still be popular mobile phones, but they are coming towards the end of their lives. Xiaomi launched both Android One handsets in 2018, which suggests that they are both into their final year of software updates. However, Google just binds OEMs to deliver security patch updates to devices for 3 years, no function updates. So with Xiaomi already having released 2 OS upgrades to the Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite, it means that neither device is most likely to get any functions.

Thus, the Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite will permanently stay on Android 10, unless neighborhood developers bring Android 11 to the entry-level handsets. The lack of any future feature updates likewise indicates that Xiaomi will not be bringing native screen recorder performance to either device, too. Beta versions of Android 10 had integrated screen recorders, however Google disabled the function soon before it made the OS public last year.

If you have actually been waiting on the functionality to arrive on either the Mi A2 or Mi A2 Lite, then you might always allow it by means of ADB commands. All you need to enable in ADB is the following command. Please note the functionality might not work totally as meant given that it is a hidden feature.

adb shell settings put global settings_screenrecord_long_press true
