unwat Here's a thread where someone was asking about GmsCompat and location. strcat said:
Most of this will be gone with the next release because we taught GmsCompat not to bother obtaining a new location when the apps trying to get it are going to have their requests rejected anyway.
Guess that means you might stop seeing this soon.
I saw it upon reboot of installing the latest update. I just checked again and after about 1 minute of unlocking my device, same thing. I go check "Location Usage" in the "Privacy dashboard" and nothing shows having accessed my location recently, and everything is set to "only allowed while in use" or "not allowed". This is on a Pixel 6 running build 2022102600.
It isn't something I see as an issue, just an annoying false-positive.
