Google restricts which Android apps can request Call Log and SMS permissions
Quote:Google has announced a new Play Store policy meant to prevent intrusive Android apps from collecting call log and SMS information from users' devices. According to Google, only an app that has been selected as the phone's default app for making calls or sending text messages will be able to access call logs and SMS data via the SMS and Call Log permissions.

The new policy entered into effect yesterday. Android app developers have 90 days to update their apps accordingly. Google says that alternative APIs, such as the SMS Retriever API, the SMS Intent API, the Share Intent API, or the Dial Intent API can be used as replacements for some of the features powered by having direct access to the SMS and Call Log permissions.
