SPY-tunes scandal: Bloke sues Bose after headphones app squeals on his playlist

you need to have both GPS and Bluetooth turned on to use it

Does it actually need GPS or just location services? On android I believe location services have to be enabled in order to use bluetooth because google. That doesn't excuse Bose for slurping data tho.

The play store says the required permissions are:

bind to an accessibility service

view network connections

pair with Bluetooth devices

access Bluetooth settings

full network access
