  • Google Is Pausing The Accessibility Ban On Apps For Now

    Google Is Pausing The Accessibility Ban On Apps For Now

    5 days ago - By Android Headlines

    Google is pausing the accessibility ban on applications for now until it can figure out if some app developers actually have a reason for needing the accessibility API for certain features of their apps to function. There are indeed some apps which do need the accessibility API for a feature or two, such as the Tasker app which needs the API for its automation functions, so it might seem a bit ironic that apps which do make responsible use of the API might end up having their access to the accessibility API revoked, basically having no accessibility at all.

    This sparked a bit of outrage from both developers and Android enthusiasts who use apps that rely on these permissions to do any number of things, from copying from apps that don't normally allow it , turning your phone into a powerhouse of customization , expanding frequently typed...

    Google temporarily pauses ban of apps using Accessibility Services

    5 days ago - By Android Central

    Tasker fans, take a deep breath.
    In mid-November, Google started contacting developers to let them know that it'd be implementing new restrictions on apps using Accessibility Services. The reasoning behind this was to crack down on security vulnerabilities that can arise as a result of apps using these maliciously, but it also caused for confusion and aggravation around apps like LastPass that use Accessibility Services legitimately.
    According to Android Police , Google is now reaching out to developers once again to let them know that it's taking a step back on these actions.
