App Permission and App Usage Access – The Difference

Do you have an Android device? Is it version 5 and above? If yes, then you will be familiar with pop-ups telling you that the app or app feature(s) you are currently using for the first time will needs to use a core component of your device and thus you need to grant the app the permission to do so.
This is the situation that best describe what the term App Permission is used for.

In other words, App Permission is a tech term used to indicate that an application will need your permission to use a core component of your device in order to function effectively.

App Usage Access on the other hand is a type of permission given to an app allowing them to monitor the activities of other apps installed in your device.
For example, if you have a app installed to monitor the internet data consumption of apps in your device, that app needs to be granted App Usage Access permission, else it will not be able to monitor and give accurate report of how the other apps in your device is consuming your internet data.

To Make It Clear.
App Permission is a broad term used to refer to all type of permission granted to an application, whereas, App Usage Access is a specific type of app permission that grant a application the ability to monitor the activities of other application installed on your device.
