Hello, I have Xamarin.Forms project and product is on Google Play. Google Play Console gives the
Alert - this app will be impacted by a policy change
This app will be impacted by a change in the Google Play policy governing the use of SMS and CALL_LOG permissions. Apps that are not compliant may be removed from Google Play on Jan 9th, 2019.
alert. In e-mail Google says READ_CALL_LOG effects my application but there is no READ_CALL_LOG in my manifest. What can cause this situation?

    It could be that a package or library is using that permission. Although I'd expect the package documentation to refer to the need for this permission in your manifest.

    I checked the final version of the manifest from release/obj directory but there isn't any READ_CALL_LOG permission use. I tried to add but nothing changed.

    Changing minimum Android version 4.1 to 4.4 removed the READ_CALL_LOG permission from my application.
