Google will add a privacy feature of Android 11 to the older Android devices

Android 11 OS

Nowadays, privacy is a very common issue when we talk about the tech world. So, it becomes important for Android and iOS to keep the users’ data private and secure.

However, when Google’s Android 11 came, it introduced one of the best privacy features, which doesn’t let the Apps access users’ camera, storage, mic, and location when the Apps are not used for a long time. That means it removes the permission from inactive Apps automatically.

Now, Google declared its plans of bringing the same privacy feature to the older Android phones and tablets through Play Services. As per the reports, the feature will be available to the old Android 6 or higher Android version devices. So, your device needs at least an Android Marshmallow to get the feature.

One can expect from Google that they will enable this option by default for the Android 11(API level 30)  or later version targeting Apps. However, if the Apps target API levels 23-29 then the same thing won’t happen in order to avoid any potential problems.

Now, the last question is when we could see the rollout of the new privacy update. Google said that we could expect it in the month of December. But their goal is to fully roll out the feature within the first quarter of 2022.

Once you get the feature, you will have a settings panel option from where you can disable or enable this option for certain Apps. After that, the operating system will handle the permission thing from inactive Apps.
