Moreover, most gamers were used to struggle with the internal sound in screen recordings. Even if they can download the screen recording apps, they were not able to solve the internal sound issue. But, now it is not a problem anymore. We do not just have the built-in screen recording app, we can also record the internal sound in our screen recordings.
