Android 8.1 Oreo to save storage space and help battery from draining

Android 8.1 Oreo to save storage space and help battery from draining

It'd also prevent preinstalled apps you don't use from hogging additional storage, but that brings us to an even better possible solution: let people uninstall preinstalled bloatware, without hassle (please, Google?). However, Google has just sent warning emails to apps that use this service. Among the apps that are using this API for users with disabilities, you might have already heard about LastPass, Tasker or Network Monitor Mini, but there are other popular apps using it as well.

This is not like a major update for the users who are having low space issues on their phones, however this feature will definitely help you out with some free space on the device upgraded to Android 8.1 update. Developers make use of Google's API to add some functionality to their apps that have nothing to do with its initial goal, such as overlay content, fill in text fields and so on. Your app must comply with our Permissions policy and the Prominent Disclosure requirements of our User Data policy.

The company has been contacting developers of apps that rely on the Accessibility Services API for functions like overlaying content and filling in text fields, to ask them to restrict their usage only for functions that assist users with disabilities. Apps that fail to meet this requirement within 30 days may be removed from Google Play.

While Accessibility Services can greatly extend the functionality of applications, they can potentially create a security risk. Alternatively, you can remove any requests for accessibility services within your app.

Battery life is always the weak link in our smartphone-centric world, and you often find yourself baffled by the reasons why your battery drains way too fast one day and then seems to last forever the second day. It won't help you win the war, but it will more easily answer the question of which app has been misbehaving and how. It'll tell you which app has been draining the battery and how. Is an app like AutoInput (an app that helps a lot of disabled folks) not allowed because a lot of non-disabled people can benefit from it too?
