I have been using GrapheneOS for the past few weeks now and so far I have found zero issues - which is impressive considering the team size! Thanks for the great experience
That being said, I do have a question about sandboxed google play services.
Currently I only have the 'GSF' installed (the framework) but I still see that some apps, for example the Recorder app from Google, are half-functioning. I can't use any other languages to transcribe other than English, even though German is already an option when I tried to install it with the play services installed.
Now to my question: if I would install the GSF (which I already have), and also install the Services Framework and block its network access, would that make me less private? Can it still send data to google?
It seems to unlock alot more features in the stock apps I use (I use them from google w/o network access, becouse im still 24 years old and everyone around looks at me weird faced if my apps look old - but could be a 'me' problem :D )
Thanks in advance for your help!
