As you know, from Andro4all we are giving our best to bring you all the news that Google is presenting at the Google I / O 2015. One of the things we have just been confirmed is that Android M, the new version Android, whose full name is still not know-, the end user, that is, all of us, can control the permissions that apps have to control our device . Let’s see what exactly.

As already commented on the latest rumors, Android M come prepared to return to the end user the power over your privacy, and therefore in the Google I / O 2015, we have shown how rights management works. To prove it, since Google have shown us the application of WhatsApp and have tried to send a voice memo. When pulsing on the icon Android asks us if we want to WhatsApp grant permission to use the microphone . This example can be extrapolated to access the camera or GPS Instagram from Google Maps. There are many possibilities .

You see, it is still something like what we see in iOS when installing an application. As in IOS, if we take a picture through an application, Android will ask permission for the use that application. If we consider that the application does not have to access the sensor or that function, with giving “Deny” have to spare. When you have granted permits Android is preferably stored by default, but it does not mean we can not revoke the permit something we can do from the own menu settings.

Indeed, this new functionality is given by the continuous complaints from users of Android by the lack of control permits applications have on our terminal. Now we will restore our privacy, and applications can access only and exclusively to the parts of our device we choose, which is, without doubt, a whole step forward in terms of security and privacy concerns .

On a personal level, this permission management is something we’ve seen in CyanogenMod 12 and which is, in short, very useful. Applications such as Facebook or Twitter have access to almost every corner of our terminal, and although we do not realize monitor everything we do . With this new feature, which has been slow to llegar- much we can control everything that happens in our smartphone , and that is always welcome.

What do you think of this feature? ┬┐You consider useful?
