Restrictions to Android's Accessibility Services

Are CE developers aware of the new restrictions coming from Google on the use of Accessibility Services? The article linked below from Android Authority cites changes in Google's policies for app developers using accessibility services within Android. In particular, they mention LastPass, but I assume the same challenges would be faced by CE as the app uses the accessibility services as well.

I'd love to hear how the CE development team is tackling this issue. Thanks!
