    That depends rather on what device, and what version of the operating system you are using.

    Most modern devices have a built in screen recorder function, but we would need to know the details in order for somebody with relevant experience to be able to tell you how to access that on your device.

    If on Android using Google Play, Google has a built in game recorder. Open Google Play (green controller icon), under "Continue playing" section on the main menu, select Clash of Clans which takes you to the Clash panel. In the upper right, look for a camera icon, tap it!

    I don't think that is the same for all versions of Android.

    Actually, even though I have always played on Android, and have two Android devices currently, I've never actually used Google Play (Called Play Games on my Samsung), so I never knew that option existed

    But on my phone (haven't checked Tablet), there is an option in the device menu (the one that has buttons for Quit, Home, Recent Apps) while playing a game which is called "Game Booster", and if you click on that, you get an option to record.

    I know with some older versions of Android you had to use third party apps.

    In older version screen recording was locked only rooted devices worked but rooting phone is itself a risky task so it is never recommended.

    Ah yes, you are correct, it is the Play Games app. And as you noted, apparently it has to be a supported device: https://support.google.com/googlepla.../6274965?hl=en. But, now I learned something new, thank you! Did not know Game Booster also offered a recorder. Looks like we may actually have multiple native recording options!

    Many Manufacturers have built in recorders. My dad got a Realme X3, got built in screen recorder, no problem in switcing on and off anytime

    I'm using the current version of Android, my phone has a "button" for it in the drop down menu, where the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth settings are. If you don't see one there, go to the edit function on that same screen and see if it's in the extra ones that can be added manually by dragging and dropping.

    That sounds a lot like the iPhone’s control center which is also customizable, except in Apple’s case, you make the changes from the main settings menu.
