How to use proper use cases for Android UserManager.isUserAGoat()?

0 votes

I was looking at the new APIs introduced in Android 10.0. While looking at the UserManager class I came across the following method:

public boolean isUserAGoat()

Used to determine whether the user making this call is subject to teleportations.

Returns whether the user making this call is a goat.

How and when should this be used?

Hello @kartik,

From their source, the method used to return false until it was changed in API 21.

public boolean isUserAGoat() {
    return false;
}

It looks like the method has no real use for us as developers. .

In API 21 the implementation was changed to check if there is an installed app with the package com.coffeestainstudios.goatsimulator

public boolean isUserAGoat() {
    return mContext.getPackageManager()
            .isPackageAvailable("com.coffeestainstudios.goatsimulator");
}

Hope this works!!
