This article covers a free screen recorder app that can record internal game audio on Android. There are lots of screen recorder apps for Android but almost all of them only record the screen, not the audio. Even the OEM’s built-in screen recorder is the same in most cases.
Screen Recorder – No Ads is a free screen recorder app that records audio as well. This app offers two audio options where you can change the source of the audio. You can either choose internal audio or set it to record mic input. This means you can record game audio in the gameplay or record voice-over while recording screen alongside.
Apart from the audio, it also lets you use the camera to add cam overlay on the screen, similar to what people do while gaming. The app supports SD card and has the capability to pause and resume while recording. Also, it lets you customize the record format, quality, framerate, bitrate, and more. It also has another handy feature where you can apply size limit to create a new video file when 100 MB size is reached in a video. This app is available for devices running Android 9 or later. Let’s check it out in details.
