Looks like they Google are determined to block any access to non official SDK features, so expect more features to not work on Android P and beyond...

It's almost certain they won't provide an alternative SDK access mechanism for the stuff they block (despite their lovely developer friendly warm tones).

Hi,

   Your work on Macrodroid is awesome. Most of the features works cool. Keep up the good work. Hence the above news is a disappointing one for us. So does it meant that even those features which will not require ADB hack also will fail to work?

Thanks,
Shreeram

It's not fully clear what it means yet in terms of features MacroDroid uses, but I'm hoping the impact will be minimal. It shouldn't effect ADB hack based features as these do not use private APIs.
