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. On this basis, developed a feature that automatically removes from memory apps that are not used for a long time, thereby increasing the volume, but to save all the data. If you do not want to disable apps that use your battery, you will learn exactly why an application is hogging too much battery. Both app users and android devs were surprised at the new developments, considering the fact that many such apps have flourished for years without any intervention from Google.
Apps requesting accessibility services should only be used to help users with disabilities use Android devices and apps. Your app must comply with our Permissions policy and the Prominent Disclosure requirements of our User Data policy.
There are of course apps that you can download to help check which apps are vampires, draining your phone of blood (battery). But in case you don't need it, then you have the option to either close the app and turn location services off to conserve your battery life. Serious or repeated violations of any nature will result in the termination of your developer account, and investigation and possible termination of related Google accounts. Developers have 30 days to address their use of Accessibility Services so we will have to wait and see what happens.
If you've reviewed the policy and feel we may have been in error, please reach out to our policy support team. This means many apps will have to severely degrade their functionality if they wish to remain on the Play Store, unless they can convince Google that users with disabilities benefit from them. The email goes onto state that the developer needs to tell the users how the app is using the helpful services. That is because even apps designed specifically for disabled people can be banned because anyone can use them.
