What's the default format of screenshot picture for your Android device? png or jpg?
And is it possible to change the default format? If yes, how to change it?

As for my mobile phone, Android 7.0, the default format of screenshot picture is png.
I would like to change the default format to jpg, without installing any 3rd party apps, as the jpg file is smaller.

Thanks in advance.

The default format is .jpg and you cannot change the default format.
You can connect your phone to computer to get the photos and convert to .png with PS or other tool.

Yeah, I think you have to root to change

But the default format of screenshot for my mobile, Huawei Mate 9, is .png, other than jpg. :(
