Recently, Android updated its rules on how app developers must declare necessary permissions and explain the purpose of using Android services. This guide will help you submit the required information to obtain Android approval.

Health App

The permissions required for a health app can be confusing, but it's crucial to declare them correctly. Our SDK uses accelerometer and gyroscope data, which Google classifies as health sensors. To comply, declare these sensors and select Activity and Fitness as the purpose. This should suffice for Android approval.

android.permission.ACTIVITY_RECOGNITIO
