You do not need permission to take photos in Android


The android.media.action.IMAGE_CAPTURE intent does not need the _Camera_permission. By using it, your app asks the operating system to open the camera app and expects to receive a photo from it.

Your app is not accessing the camera hardware directly, so it does not need the Camera permission.

But, if you are using it in a Flutter app that uses a plugin that declares _Camera_permission, then you might first need to request permission to the user, before using the camera.
