There is a request from the Essbase & Power BI community to provide an official connector for connecting Essbase from Power BI. It started exactly 4 years back and Microsoft was delaying it for long time. Finally on Nov 7, 2018 the request has been taken care and moved from under review to backlog status.

Few days back we got our first beta version of the connector as well,

With a Warning!
The Essbase Connector is still under development. Please try it out and give us feedback. We can’t guarantee it will work the same way in the final version. Future changes may cause your queries to be incompatible.

Though, I wanted to give a try.

I started rooting Android Phone since 2013, starting from my first Android Mobile - Samsung Galaxy Ace 2. I was a user of Super-SU made by chainfire; then I switched to Magisk to root my phones systemless-ly.

I had used many modules built by developers, but never had a chance to work on a new module by myself.

Taking screenshots is a common activity, a normal user would do in all kind of electronic platforms. I do not remember having restrictions in taking screenshots on Windows PC. It used to be similar in Android platform until Google introduce restrictions from taking a screenshot.

Is there a way to bypass it? Yes!, there are…

  1. Root your device, install Xposed framework - and lose warranty 😜
  2. Cast your device to another device, such as windows PC, then take a screenshot on the PC - how complex it is?
  3. Its my way, which is the easiest one…
    Pressing and holding Volume Down and Power Key simultaneously would take screenshot in Android. This won’t work on the restricted apps and you would get an error notification that,

    Taking screenshots isn’t allowed by the app or your organization.

I’m not going to suggest any magic to take a screenshots in such cases. Just use the Google Assistant to take a screenshot. Voila! It would byepass the security and grab the screen context to you.


Make sure you have the following on your Android device.

  • Your device’s Android version should be Marshmallow (6.0) or above
  • Google application should be there
  • Option to trigger Google Assistant (either press and hold home button & ‘OK Google’ by voice)
  • Enable the option to read screen context (available in Google App > More > Settings > Settings > Phone > Use screen context)


  • Just open the app that has restrictions in taking screenshot.
  • Say ‘OK Google’ or press & hold the Home button, which will trigger the Google Assistant.
  • Say Take Screenshot, which will take the screenshot of the app that has restrictions. You can share it via other applications or save in the storage.

That’s all!! This would NOT require rooting, installing any unknown applications on your phone. It would work untill Google fixes this bug!

Video Explanation

I have made a video, to explain the same using Telegram Secret Chat feature. You may apply the same in snapchat, UTS app, etc.,

Update: It looks like Google has fixed this bug and I’m unable to use this option to take screenshot when there is restriction, using Android Pie and latest Google App. It just generates a black color image, which displays only the status bar and navigation bar.
