What’s New In BETA 3?

BETA 3 INCLUDES A NUMBER OF UPDATES TO IMPROVE FUNCTIONALITY, USER EXPERIENCE, AND PERFORMANCE. HERE ARE A FEW HIGHLIGHTS.

Scrolling Screenshots: In Beta 3, when you capture a screenshot of the content that’s scrollable, you’ll now see a “Capture more” button to extend the screenshot to the full content, and you can then adjust the crop.

In Beta 4, developers can expect improvements to the default support, such as support for scrolling ListViews.
