Google has added single-use access to features like microphone, camera, and location. It will come under the privacy feature which includes, ‘one-time permission’.
“If you haven’t used an app that you installed on your device in a while, you may not want it to keep accessing your data. Android will now “auto-reset” permissions for your unused apps and notify you accordingly. You can always decide to re-grant the app permissions the next time you use the app.”
“Businesses often rely on phone calls to reach out to new customers and serve existing ones. But here’s the hang-up: customers often don’t answer the call if they don’t recognize the number. […] Verified Calls aims to solve this problem by showing the caller’s name, logo, reason for calling and a verification symbol indicating the business has been authenticated by Google.”
Google has also added one more interesting feature which is an in-built screen recording feature. This feature will help in sharing tutorial videos.
“Now you can capture and share what’s happening on your phone. Record with sound from your mic, device or both – no extra app required.”
Android 11 is launched today globally, however, verified call features are being rolled in some regions – US, Mexico, Brazil, Spain, and India.
