According to Bloomberg Business, which received information from people who asked not to be identified because of confidentiality, Google plans to give Android users more control over what type of information applications can access. It speculates that this could include photos, contacts, or location-based apps, which would make Android more similar to Apple’s iOS.
Last year, Google made it easier for users to know what permissions apps requested upon attempting to download or update them. If they did not like the permissions, then they could easily cancel the process. Soon, these new settings would let individuals choose what accesses an app can have.
