Android Permission Provisioning has changed recently, If an app is using Android SDK API level 22 or below, users are asked for all the permissions in bulk at the time of installation i.e. Without granting permission user can not install the app. Now with Android 6's security patch called Run Time Permission (API level 23 and above) the app while in use can request for specific permission when the need arise ( similar to iOS ) e.g. you will be asked for the location's permission when you actually try to access the location of the device.
