import { AndroidPermissions } from '@ionic-native/android-permissions/ngx';


constructor(private androidPermissions: AndroidPermissions) { }

...

this.androidPermissions.checkPermission(this.androidPermissions.PERMISSION.CAMERA).then(
  result => console.log('Has permission?',result.hasPermission),
  err => this.androidPermissions.requestPermission(this.androidPermissions.PERMISSION.CAMERA)
);

this.androidPermissions.requestPermissions([this.androidPermissions.PERMISSION.CAMERA, this.androidPermissions.PERMISSION.GET_ACCOUNTS]);

Android 26 and above: due to Android 26's changes to permissions handling (permissions are requested at time of use rather than at runtime,) if your app does not include any functions (eg. other Ionic Native plugins) that utilize a particular permission, then requestPermission() and requestPermissions() will resolve immediately with no prompt shown to the user. Thus, you must include a function utilizing the feature you would like to use before requesting permission for it.
