Top fixes to developer-reported issues

The following developer-reported issues were fixed in Developer Preview 3:

  • Calling the KeyGenerator.init() method no longer crashes with an InvalidAlgorithmParameterException (Issue #151969454).
  • There is no longer a delay for playing the corresponding sound when locking or unlocking a device (Issue #149975678).

App compatibility changes

The following changes related to app compatibility are included in Developer Preview 3:

  • Greylist restrictions that were temporarily relaxed on a small number of methods used by OkHttp and related SDKs have been reinstated. If you are using OkHttp for your app, you should update to the latest version.
  • Starting in Developer Preview 3, apps targeting Android 11 that require access to device phone numbers must now request the READ_PHONE_NUMBERS permission, rather than the READ_PHONE_STATE permission. Apps that are targeting Android 10 (API level 29) or lower can still access phone numbers by requesting READ_PHONE_STATE.
