Google Screen Recorder records computer screen in browser, saves in Webm format without installation

If you want to record screen images on your computer and convert the recording process into a video format, many people may choose to use screen recording software! In fact, the browser has video recording function, and it is not limited to the webpage screen, it can also record the entire screen screen, specific window or page, how to use this function? In addition to opening specific network services such as, RecordCast,, etc., Google also provides some detection tools in the administrator tool, including a screen recorder, which is very convenient.

Google Screen RecorderUses Javascript technology to record screen captures and audio in the user’s browser. This service does not send media files to Google or any remote services, but it should be noted that Google Screen Recorder only works on desktop computers , Notebook computer use (does not support mobile phone or tablet computer), and it is only applicable to Google Chrome browser or other Chromium core browsers, but after I tested it, I found that the Microsoft Edge browser cannot be used normally.

Google Screen Recorder can record screen images independently, or record audio content simultaneously, select the recording device, and record videos in .webm format, which can be downloaded and saved without registration or account login.
