This change does not affect development, as Android Studio grants all permissions by default.

I read this as saying saying that during development, you don't have to approve permissions when the app runs.

Well idk, you're probably right, I haven't done android dev in a while, like the last time I touched it was 5 years ago or something

I don't remember how I granted permissions for the app, maybe I tossed a manifest I grabbed somewhere and called it a day or used a checkbox menu in android studio

Thing is, "all permissions granted" is so widespread it seems, that I suppose it's the easy way of getting rid of the "problem" for many devs, but maybe I'm wrong maybe it's evil pajeets who want to read your mails idk

You used to have to add each permission you wanted to the android-manifest.xml file.

Now you do it via a webconsole, there is no grant all permission either.

So they are purposefully selecting them all.
