Android (Xposed): Last year, Google made a change to how Android permissions are handled that could allow some new privileges to slip through unnoticed. PlayPermissionsExposed is an Xposed module that fixes this so you won’t be taken by surprise.

The module simply changes the UI when you’re updating an app so that instead of seeing simplified categories, you’ll see each individual new permission that the application is requesting. While you can still see the whole list without this module in Settings, but this module allows you to see what’s changing immediately as you update.
