Pixel™, Phone by Google - Turn App Permissions On / Off

App permissions give you the ability to customize and control which capabilities you give apps. You can pick and choose which permissions to grant apps at the time of use.

Note Notes:

  • Downloaded apps designed for Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) and up only ask for permission the first time you use a feature rather than asking for permissions out of context.
  • Turning off certain permissions may result in basic features no longer working as intended.

  2. Navigate: Settings Settings app icon > Apps & notifications Apps and notifications icon.
  3. Tap Advanced.

  5. Tap the appropriate permission type to modify (e.g., Body Sensors, Microphone, Location, etc.).
