Finally, a notification message will appear which says “Video Saved. You can view your video now.” This means that your video is successfully captured and recorded.

Any Other Quick Way to Do It?

Well, another option is to use the “Voice Commands” function. You just need to activate the Voice Commands function and then speak the instructions which are:

  2. Stop recording

Sounds easy, huh? Unfortunately, we can’t show or demo the steps because the functionality is only currently available for user in United States that using English as the default language. Sigh…

Lastly, Where You Can Find the Video?

You can find the video the same way as when you want to find the screenshot images.
