Google restricts apps from using access permission via SMS, calls

Updated : January 22, 2019 05:48 PM IST

While cases where Google is allowing access to these permissions include an app being the default handler for calls, SMS, Google Assistant queries, the other use cases are expected to request a temporary extension and work to find an alternative way.
This step comes as a security measure to prevent users from getting involved in questionable apps that could use the access permissions to send out premium SMS and calls, fake two-factor authentication or steal secured accounts.
