Transferring that information to Google means using up gigabytes of data that consumers have paid for under data packages purchased from local telecom service providers, according to the Oracle report.

I find this UI to be rather intuitive, and while I agree that the motion can seem to be a bit clunky, I think Google can smoothen it up before Android P's official launch later this year. "This set of options is inadequate and the confusing consent process is replicated throughout Android's various settings, where location privacy is often mischaracterized or subdivided so few users could effectuate their choice to opt-out of Google's location data gathering".

Android P is packed with new features, many of which are created to make the software more intuitive to use.

Now, spying is a new accusation, but spying using users' own data induces a monetary angle as well. Google claims they developed "cleanroom" versions, however the lawsuit has gone on for some time and after a trip on appeal by Oracle to the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in March, Google was found to have infringed upon their copyright.
