Google launches one-click cookie-rejection in EU; Google will block select 3rd-party call recording apps

It will now take just a click for Europeans to accept or reject cookies on Google search and YouTube when  in Incognito Mode or when signed out. France’s regulator, CNIL, provided guidance for the changes, which began roll-out this month in France, and continues on in the rest of Europe, UK and Switzerland.

Mid-May, the Google Play Store will begin blocking 3rd-party call recording apps – but only for apps that record calls where the person on the other end doesn’t know. However,  if a phone has a pre-installed dialer, that will continue to function. A start, but not feeling overly satisfied with the logic here!
