The machine UI in Android has, typically, been sacrosanct. Apps can’t just add new elements towards the OS, but Android N looks to become loosening up that restriction a little. We already published about the opportunity to add Quick Settings tiles natively, and today it appears as though Bing is allowing developers to insert an application settings link in application info.

The application info screen is to visit permissions, notification status, data storage, and so forth. It is a couple of levels deep within the settings, but you will get there in the recent application list too. It’s certainly one of my most typical stop-offs within the Android settings. It’s neat, then, that Google will let developers incorporate a settings link. It’ll appear like a small gear icon that, when pressed, will open the app’s settings.

Developers can enable this selection with the addition of a string for their manifest using the value android.intent.action. APPLICATION _PREFERENCES. You can observe this within the Android N preview documentation supplied by Google.
