    Configure for Android

    This module requires the permissions for approximate and exact device location. It also needs the foreground service permission to subscribe to location updates, while the app is in use. These permissions are automatically added.

    <!-- Added permissions -->
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION" />
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION" />
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.FOREGROUND_SERVICE" />
    <!-- Optional permissions -->
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_BACKGROUND_LOCATION" />

    Note: on Android, you have to submit your app for review and request access to use the background location permission.
