How to get the list of all the Apps installed in your Android phone? – Android 12 | API Level 31

In this video it shows how to get the list of all the apps installed in your Android phone in the latest version of API level 31. From API level 30 onwards, it has introduced restrictions to get the list of all the apps by default.

For Apps, such as Security Apps, antivirus Apps, etc., which really needs access to all the installed Apps can use the QUERY_ALL_PACKAGES permission in the manifest file. The difference in the output by using and not using this permission is shown in this video.
