The claims were made by Oracle as part of evidence provided to an Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) investigation into the internet giant, amid claims that Google is secretly tracking the movements of all Android users.

"We are exploring how much consumers know about the use of location data and are working closely with the Privacy Commissioner", the ACCC said in a statement.

They cited a Quartz report in November that showed the company collects location information from Android users even when they have turned off location services, haven't used any apps or even inserted a SIM card.

For those times when you need to watch your data usage, Google News offers a few basic controls to ensure it's not eating up your monthly data allotment while catching up on what's going on in the world.

Previous year similar claims were made about Android smartphones in a Quartz report, including the idea that user location was being relayed to Google even when location services were turned off. But it does not appear to mention the constant monitoring in the background when Maps is not in use.

Oracle further claims that this data transfers to Google, which could be up to gigabytes per month, and is being paid by the users themselves.

While Sims indicated that his team is looking into this, he went on to say that the department discovered a lot of issues in terms of a lack of privacy, even for the simplest and smallest things. Only turning off a phone prevents monitoring, it says.

Saudi Arabia announces Thursday start for Ramadan
In Ramadan , Muslims' souls will be freed. "That's obviously challenging this time of year", Hasan says. They also offer more prayers, contribute more money to the poor and regularly study the Quran.

Among the data gathered were barometric pressure readings to determine the height at which an individual was, in order to work out if one was at a certain floor of a shopping complex.

This may not seem like a major change, but it is a nice tweak that Google has done with the way media volume is controlled when running Android P. Before this change, whenever you'd press up or down on your volume buttons, the default control is over the ringer's volume.

It can then report to advertisers how often online ads have led to store visits, according to Oracle.

Sundar Pichai's company is also facing pressure from within and outside over its decision to partner with the U.S. military in Artificial Intelligence testing for the sector. Google is under investigation for using people's phone data without permission.

He said the presentation by the visiting experts was "extremely interesting" and "valuable input" into the digital platforms inquiry, which is examining the impact of Google, Facebook and other tech giants.

Google said it was collecting phones' nearest cell tower locations because that would let it deliver messages faster; it denied retaining that location, and later disabled the "service".
