I figured it might be interesting for GrapheneOS or DivestOS users to know what they’re missing out on when opting not to use Google Play Services, so upon request I have started maintaining a list of features that are advertised as “part of Android”, but in reality depend on Google Play Services.
I thought I would post this here as some may find it interesting and/or useful.
note that this is essentially cross-posted from the Matrix Chat. I thought people in the forum may be interested too.
Oh, that’s interesting
Does that include the version baked into Android Accessibility Services that Google ships through Play?
I’ve never used stock Android, so no idea.
I’ll have to do some digging then, thanks for the heads-up!
Very interesting, thanks for that!
Do you know of any alternative for call screening and that also works when you get a call while the screen is off?
Not currently, no. But doesn’t call-screening rely on Google Assistant anyways?
I think Samsung has their own implementation in their caller, works without Google Assistant or the Google app
well, fair. I should probably clarify the README to say “Google Call Screening”
