Here’s how to test YouTube’s new screenshot feature

The Google extension ‘Screenshot YouTube’ has ended!

YouTube users can now take screenshots using Google’s new screenshot feature – currently in beta.

All Chrome users will soon have access to the feature, which is super simple and useful.

Here’s how it works:

  • Pause a YouTube video while watching it in Chrome
  • Right-click the video
  • A drop-down menu reveals the option “Save video frame as”
  • Save the image as a PNG

@Leopeva64 demonstrated how the feature works on X.

When you need to take a screenshot of just the video frame, this feature should prove useful. Then you won’t have to worry about manually cropping a screenshot or taking a screenshot of your entire screen. In just a couple of clicks, you’ll have an image of the video in the same resolution.
