Hmm. I have read this several times and it still doesn’t make sense to me. 🙂 How is it possible for Chrome to delete data from other apps??? Isn’t Chrome just another app, or have I missed something and Chrome is now part of the OS, a’la Internet Explorer in the Microsoft Windows 3.1 days (or whatever)?

This would be great, wouldn’t it?! 🙂

It looks like the xTab extension does this for the desktop / runtime version of Chrome.

No more recording phone calls as of Android 9: Pie. Why (not)???

https://bitbucket.org/copluk/acr/issues/2418/

It seems really silly to me that there’s not an easy way that’s officially supported to record phone calls on smartphones. Privacy concerns amount to paranoia in this case. There is much practical value in recording phone calls.

Android 9: Pie, priority notifications?

If I’m seeing things correctly Android 9 did away with priority notifications and it seems like that’s a huge step backward.

Priority notifications allowed you to tell your phone that while you didn’t want to turn off all notifications you just wanted ones that were important to you for a while. I think if you were to ask people they would love to have this capability. However in Android 9 it looks like this middle ground between all notifications and full-on do-not-disturb mode was eliminated. If I’m wrong about this I hope someone will let me know. My investigations so far have led me to believe that Google decided this feature was a waste of time for some reason. I’m hoping that they choose to reimplement this obviously useful feature.
