Some developers found that in the new version of Android 12, Google's imitation of IOS 14 is very obvious, but users should still like it.
Apple introduced a privacy security feature in its IOS 14 and iPad 14 updates last year to tell users which app is using camera or microphone rights. Starting from Android 10, Google is also trying to improve the privacy experience of its mobile operating system. In the recent Android 12 developer preview version, there have been new changes.
From the screenshot shared by developers, the Android 12 new version will tell which app has the right to call the camera or microphone, so that users can determine whether they are being monitored by a specific app.
Similar to the experience on iPhone, the system will light up an orange or green indicator in the upper left corner of the screen when an app calls the microphone or camera.
If an orange dot appears in the upper left corner of the screen, the app is using a microphone. If a green dot is displayed, the app is accessing the camera.
Tap the notification to pop up an actual window, which shows in detail which applications are calling the camera or microphone, so that users can take further measures (such as removing relevant permissions).
In any case, in terms of protecting users' privacy, the two major manufacturers plagiarize and learn from each other, which is worth praising.
