Screenshots can be immediately accessed in the top toolbar, but are also stored in the photos file for later viewings.
Wish Google would just a screen shot button in the shortcuts page like my HTC and Lenovo phones. Even Apple let’s you do it if you use the accessibility button. The long screenshot feature on my Lenovo phone is even better.
