How to take Screenshots in Restricted Apps

Apps that have Restricted Screenshots can be annoying. Tor Browser, Hotstar, Voot there are so many streaming services and Apps that I love but they don’t allow me to take screenshots. I tried searching Apps on Play Store but that wasn’t useful as those Apps would only capture a black screen.

After searching for 2 hours, I finally found a solution and that solution was Google Assistant. I was surprised to know that Google Assistant can take screenshots on Restricted Apps. Would you like to see how that works, Read on!
