Latest Samsung Galaxy S8 Oreo beta includes App Permission Monitor

Himanshu, 20 December 2017

Samsung's Galaxy Note8 comes with a feature dubbed App Permission Monitor. It alerts you when permissions you select are being used by app running in the background. Not only that, you can also take a quick look at the permissions history for an app.

Well, the feature is no longer Galaxy Note8-exclusive, as it's now available in the latest Galaxy S8 Oreo beta build.

Samsung has made several useful additions in the Oreo build. Recently, it came to light that screenshot naming has been improved by the company - now the default file name includes name of the app from within which the screenshot was captured.

The Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+ are first in line to get Oreo. A beta program is currently active, and it's expected that the final update will begin rolling by the end of January or start of February.
