The new Android 9.0 Pie Update brings a feature that lacks the Android OS – screenshot editing. OEM skins like the Samsung TouchWiz have had this for years, and Apple recently added it to iOS. But now that it's Android in stock, it will be included with every phone in the future – annoyance is, most people have to wait for the update. Luckily, you can now get this feature on any phone.
Thanks to the XDA user Quinny899, the Android pie update's markup tool has been ripped to fit almost any Android phone, so you can easily edit screenshots. All you have to do is download and install the XDA tool – which can be a little tricky if you are not careful.
: Download the Android Pie Markup App
On your Android phone, make sure first At Unknown sources allow you to sideload apps (of course, this tool is not available on the Play Store ). From there, download the markup APK via the following link.
Once you download the tool, click "Download" or "Save" when prompted. Some phones may give you the option to rename the file here, and you can – as long as you do not change the ".apk" extension.
Step 2: Install the Markup App
After you downloaded the markup APK, it should appear in your notification panel. Tap Download complete notification to open it, or just open the APK with any file browser. Next, you will be directed to the installation screen, so tap "Install" when prompted.
Step 3: Use markup to edit your screenshots  To use the new Android 9.0 markup tool, first create a screenshot as you normally would. Unlike Android Pie, older versions of Android have no "Edit" button in the message Screenshot Captured . However, this is not an issue – just tap the Share button in the notification and choose Markup from the pop-up menu.
Now you can draw on your screenshot to your heart's content. There is a pen button and a highlighter button, and these two options allow you to select any color of your choice as you type. You can even use the drag handles on all four sides of your screenshots to crop the image, and there are a number of handy undo and redo buttons.
When you're done, tap the checkmark in the upper-right corner Corner to save your work. Then you will find the edited screenshots on your SD card or internal memory in the "Pictures" folder.
