Components Permission messages

Permission messages

Apps may require specific user permissions, such as location access, to function properly. Because Wear OS is a companion to a mobile device, these permissions may need to be accepted on that device.

The following layouts show how to notify users in consistent and user-friendly ways.

Wear OS uses runtime permissions to request permission only at the moment a user needs to perform an action in an app.
