Google confirmed that third party camera applications will be restricted with the Android 11 operating system. Users will be directed to use the standard camera app instead of third party camera apps.
The new version of Android operating system, Android 11, which will meet with us soon, It will bring security enhancements. One of the changes that Google will make with the new Android version will be about third party applications.
You may have heard that many applications are used to capture users’ data. The most common category for these applications was camera applications. Here, Google is making a new regulation to prevent camera applications from being used for data theft.
Android 11 will restrict third party camera apps:
Android users will no longer be able to choose between cameras while using third-party applications. Instead, users will be able to use the standard camera app that comes with their smartphones.
Users will still be able to take photos using third party apps (such as Instagram). However, third party applications will be able to run the camera application of your choice, but will not be able to import any photos.
Also, according to The Verge, users will be able to choose which camera will turn on when they press the power button twice. However, users who want to access a third party application will be able to do so from the application shortcut on their smartphones.
Although Google said that the precaution it took was for security, many users on the Issue Tracker platform opposed such restrictions of third party camera applications. Many comments were that users should be asked at least which camera they would like to use.
