Google to Bring Back Permissions Section List to Play Store

Recently, we reported about Google’s decision to remove the app permissions list from Play Store. However, Google has now decided to reverse this decision because of the feedback users are giving.

Android Developers on Twitter said that privacy and transparency are the two core values in the Android community. They have considered users’ feedback about the importance of the app permissions section in the Google Play Store. So, they have decided to reinstate this section, which is expected to be back soon.

Why do people want the permissions section back?

As various commentators noticed, both Data Safety Section and permissions section are generated by different companies. The data safety section is generated by Developers, whereas the permissions section is generated by Google. And as Google has removed the permissions section, it has made it impossible for people to instantly fact-check by comparing both of these sections with each other.

Along with this, people are now facing difficulty to see what a particular app is up to and what it has access to.

On July 13, Google removed the permissions section from the Google Play store. At the time of removing this section, the company did not give any reasons for doing so. But the decision of bringing this section back has been a piece of happy news for most of the users out there.

As of now, the company has not officially announced whether a new version of the Play store will be announced or it will be done through a server-side change. As soon as the company confirms, we will update you.
