I want to have these google apps in my main profile:
- Speech Services
Having these apps in a secondary profile I've found to be rather inconvenient and impractical for me. At the same time to get them to work I have to also install some core Play components. Because of fear of data leaking to google through these apps and through IPC with Play components (specially text data and picture meta data), I have decided its best to network block all of them. Disabling unneeded Play components can also save battery so I intend to do that too if all apps still function (which I think they do).
This creates the predicament that if an app needs notifications (communication apps, email), they will see Play installed and choose it for notification delivery, and hence will not get notifications.
I'm trying to find a way to get them to work and not to choose Google Notification Service while on the same profile. One solution I can think of is that I install those apps (signal, telegram, email) BEFORE I install the Play stuff. This could work. However the issue is that if for whatever reason I have to reinstall any of them or in the future I need a new app installed then they will not get any notification.
Worst case scenario is that I would have to redo my entire main profile should any of the above scenarios come up, and that's a pretty bad method I wouldn't wanna rely on.
I could live with email apps not getting notifications. Email is not that urgent and I don't need immediate alerts.
In the case of signal, would perhaps installing Molly instead of signal resolve this? Does Molly always bypass the Play notifications?
Are there any telegram replacement apps that would force bypass Play notifications?
Would disabling Play components trick apps into thinking they are not present? (I think not, but don't know for sure).
Signal and telegram are my main concerns. Possibly also whatsapp, but to a lesser degree cause I dont use it now, but I may have to in the future.
Thanks for any help.
