Google Introduces Controlled App Permissions for Android M

What makes Android unique is its ability to customize, personalize, and control your Android device. With Android M, the control you have over your device will be greater than ever. Google announced today at its Google I/O conference that it’s enhancing the control you have over app permissions. Apps will no longer ask for vague and general permissions when you install them. Now, whenever the app tries to use, let’s say the microphone to record sound, it will ask you for your permission to use it, and you can either allow it or reject it.

In the app settings you will also be able to activate or desactivate each permission manually. This is a huge step forward for Android security and it will help users feel a lot safer using Android apps.
