Android P May Not Let Idle Apps Access Your Phone’s Camera


The next major Android platform update is currently referred to as “Android P” since the dessert name hasn’t been revealed as yet, Google hasn’t even detailed Android P officially but that could happen in the not too distant future. However, given the open source nature of Android, some hints about the features this version of Android will offer have surfaced. The latest suggests that Android P will improve security by not allowing idle apps to access your device’s camera.

An Android Open Source Project commit has been spotted with the new rule-sets in Android P preventing apps idling in the background from accessing the camera. This will prevent malicious apps running in the background from making use of the camera to capture victims in a compromising position by accessing the camera without their knowledge.

Unfortunately it seems that gamers shouldn't expect that for Nintendo games because in an update to the Nintendo Creators Program, YouTubers will no longer be allowed to live stream their games. For those unfamiliar, the Nintendo Creators Program is where Nintendo will allow YouTubers who post videos about their games to earn a portion of ad revenue, whereas prior to that all of the ad revenue for these videos would go straight to Nintendo.
