Where are Stadia screenshots saved?

Action shot: you can save your Stadia screenies

So, you’ve leapt aboard the Google Stadia bandwagon and have been furiously taking screenshots of your exploits in Destiny 2, GRID and so on. Where are all those screenshots saved and how can you share them?

Stadia rather hides its screenshots from view, making them tricky to find.

If you’re playing Stadia in the Google Chrome browser on a computer at https://stadia.google.com, then scroll right down to the bottom of the screen, beneath all of your activated games, and you’ll see a section called Captures.

Press “See all” to reveal your grabs. You can now click on any of them and a download symbol will appear in the top right-hand corner of the grab. Press this to save it to your computer for sharing on social media and so forth.

The drill is similar if you’re using the Stadia mobile app. On the homescreen, scroll down and you’ll see the Captures displayed at the bottom of the screen. However, unless I’m missing something, there’s no way to directly download the grab to your device from the mobile (at the time of writing).

The only way you could do it would be to display the screenshot full screen on your mobile and then use the phone’s own screen capture system (normally activated by pressing the power button and down volume button simultaneously).

In other words, it’s much less hassle to download your screenshots using a full web browser.
