How to take screenshots of Google Play review ratings

Learn how to automatically take screenshots of Google Play Store review ratings for your app with PagePixels.


PagePixels is a screenshot tool that can automate the process of taking screenshots of web pages (and parts of web pages), including an app's Google Play review ratings.

PagePixels is free to start, and this tutorial demonstrates how to capture an app's Google Play Store ratings and reviews metrics:

  • Average star rating score (as a number and as a star pictograph chart),
  • Total number of reviews,
  • And star rating distribution (as a bar chart).


How to take screenshots of a Google Play Store app's review ratings

To take recurring screenshots of your Google Play ratings on a daily schedule:


Create a screenshot

Log in to your PagePixels account, and click the "+Create Screenshot" button.


Set your schedule

By default, recurring screenshots are set to every 5 minutes.

For a daily screenshot, change the default frequency values from every "5" "Minutes" to every "1" "Days" using the input field and drop-down menu.



Copy and paste a link to an app's Google Play Store listing web page into the "Website URL to Capture" field.


Add CSS Selector

PagePixels CSS selector option comes in handy when you want to capture only a specific element on a web page.

In this case - to screenshot only the ratings and reviews element on the app's Google Play Store page, you can use the CSS Selector:


Change Scale Factor (optional)

To produce a higher resolution screenshot of the reviews rating element, select the option 2 from the "Scale Factor" field drop-down menu.


Add custom CSS (optional)

PagePixels CSS injection option is useful for customizing the style of a web page or a specific element you want to screenshot.

In this case - to add padding to the Google Play reviews rating element, you can use the CSS:

padding: 16px;

Save Screenshot

Click the green "Save Screenshot" (top-right) button.

Your screenshot automation is officially set, and your first screenshot will be taken shortly.
