Moreover, you can turn the notifications off right from that notification in the window.
3- Android Privacy Changes
For instance, if you go to camera app’s permissions, if you deny the permission then it will ask you when you open camera that does you want to allow it to record videos or take pictures. You can allow or deny from there and also choose do not ask again option. Same as in other apps, e.g. in a few apps the location is needed so you can allow or deny that as well.
Furthermore, a separate privacy option has been added in settings, from there you can check the permissions for all the apps, such as which app is using what permissions from your phone.
