A new report from Bloomberg claims Google is about to revamp the way privacy is handled in Android apps. The changes would allow users to approve permissions individually for things like the camera, location, or the contact list. With Android M expected at I/O later this month, it seems like a perfect time to make this happen. It’s long overdue.
For all its feature shortcomings compared to Android, iOS has long offered users more control over what apps are able to access on their devices.
