Android P is expected to be Google’s next upgrade for its popular mobile operating system. While we might still be a few months away from the launch – most likely around Google’s I/O event – source code commits have surfaced online describing a few key features of Android P. Two of these source code commits are of particular interest as they restrict background apps on the OS from accessing your device’s microphone and camera while running in the background.

Commits from the Android Open Source Project (AOSP), first spotted by XDA Developers, have been found to restrict specific access for third-party apps running on Android P-powered devices.
