With launch of the latest version for Android Kitkat, Google has enabled screen recording feature through which you can record your screen. This feature can be used to make android tutorial or games walkthroughs.
For using this feature, you have to root your android phone with your PC but to use this feature without rooting your phone; you will need Android SDK’s command-line ADB utility which allows initiating screen recording using a USB connection. This can a tedious job for a normal user.
