Google is restricting which apps can access Call Log
For a few weeks I got a mail from Google I have to remove the Call Log from my app because they change the policy.
Only some apps can use the Call Log after the end of this year.
So sadly I have to remove 2 features:
- Show the Call Log inside COL Reminder (Telephone Reminder)
- Quick Call Reminder after a call to add quickly the last called number
For the first one, show Call Log, I have a little workaround. I will show the phones call log and the user have to share the contact with COL Reminder (bad user experience I know).
The second one, Quick Call Reminder, has to be removed completly.
There exists no workaround for this on Android 9.
For Android 8 and below it should work as before but without warranty.
If anyone want the full details about this descision from Google can read the Blog post from Paul Bankhead, Director, Product Management, Google Play
