Google Play Console requestLegacyExternalStorage

  • No, WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE permission is NOT declared in the Manifest of an empty project (with only one button).
  • Yes, android:requestLegacyExternalStorage="true" is declared in the Manifest of each project, as I already said here:

To prevent access problems to the external storage with Android 11 devices.
As I already said (→ #15): targetSdkVersion = 29: requestLegacyExternalStorage → works.

No !!!

No, only these:

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET"/>
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE"/>
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_WIFI_STATE"/>

and these (non-dangerous permissions) are always declared.



please tell clearly what i should do ?


(as of now )

then when we will update our app?

I think everything necessary on this topic has already been said.


Some times you require the permission even just for a simple button if you’re using the “background-image” block or the “image” block of the button.

Just relax and do nothing.

Setting a background image does not require the READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE permission, they image would be read from assets.

I have never used that feature. but, what if you set the image from external storage?

I don’t think thats possible.

Of course, that is possible (also on Android 11 devices):

So, what happens when Kodular doesn’t target Android 10 anymore :slightly_smiling_face:

In this specific case (as shown by me) nothing changes if the app (Kodular) targets API 30 (targetSdkVersion = 30).
