Android’s Switch Access feature, once part of its Accessibility Suite, is now its own app.

As reported by 9to5Google, Google has pulled its Switch Access feature (which lets you use either physical switches or facial expressions to control your Android phone) from its Accessibility Suite and made it into a separate app. This way, apparently, the feature can be more easily updated. Which is fine, but be aware that you may end up with two separate Switch Access entries in your Accessibility listing — at least, for now.

Curious about this, and Android’s other accessibility features? We’ve got some info for you.
