Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+ get Galaxy Note 8's App Permission Monitor with latest Oreo beta

When the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 hit the marketplace in September, it came with an interesting feature called the App Permission Monitor. With the latter turned on, Note 8 users receive a notification each and every time an app uses a specific permission. And if you have nothing better to do, you can view an app's permission history, along with a list of apps using permissions in the background. The app and the specific permissions used can be viewed.

While this feature is available for the Galaxy Note 8, users of the Samsung Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ are out of luck. Or should we say that they were out of luck. As it turns out, the latest beta version of the Android 8.0 beta brings the App Permission Monitor to the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+.

There are some Android users hoping that the App Permission Monitor makes it to Android as a native feature that more Android users, other than just those running a Samsung Galaxy device, can enjoy.
