As reported in Android Police, the new feature could auto revoke permissions when apps have been sat idly on your phone for a long time.
Anyone who8217;s already on the developer program and has downloaded the third version of the preview should be able to spot the feature in the app permissions tab, which you can access via opening up the settings and then navigating to 8216;Apps & notifications.8217;
Unfortunately, it will be a while before you can fully test it out, as the automatic activity doesn8217;t kick in until you8217;ve ignored an app for a few months – and Google hasn8217;t offered any information on how many months classifies as 8216;a few8217;.
The new feature could help users better protect their data, as sloppy phone users will often forget to uninstall unused apps that are sucking up their info. But as the feature is still only available on the developer preview, there8217;s no solid confirmation that it will be available to the general public.
This is the third – and mostly likely final – version of the developer preview, as the public beta version is expected to roll out within a few weeks. We8217;d have expected to hear more about the upcoming Android 11 update at Google I/O, however that has since been cancelled.
