Thanks for the link to the podcast. I'm not sure that I understood everything acoustically correctly, but the topic of my question is only briefly addressed once (At the point where it is about the cat and mouse game).
The question is whether a agreement with Google is necessary to use the Play Services. Who needs to make this agreement? GrapheneOS because there is the possibility to integrate these services? Do I have to make the agreement with Google?
I ask this because I bought a few things and need the Google account at the moment. Sometimes Google accounts are frozen without a understandable reason. Until you get your data back, it can take a long time and you have trouble with Google.
The Wikipedia article says that there must be a contract here (I know that Wikipedia is not a serious source, but that's why I ask here, because I have found nothing else). Is there a developer who knows this?
Seems like a good point that permission only affects hardware manufacturers.
