Mobile Guidelines — Android

This topic addresses considerations when developing for an Android device:

Permissions

The OpenTok Android SDK uses following permissions:

android.permission.CAMERA
android.permission.INTERNET
android.permission.RECORD_AUDIO
android.permission.MODIFY_AUDIO_SETTINGS
android.permission.BLUETOOTH
android.permission.BROADCAST_STICKY

You do not need to add these to your app manifest. The OpenTok SDK adds them automatically. However, if you use Android 21+, certain permissions require you to prompt the user.
