I think no. Google is a bit touchy about apps that non-explicitly gather users' personal information.

Check the first code block of this post:

The post is almost a decade old, but: I just double-checked that the LocationSettingsIntent still works (yes) and I used the RuntimePermissions CheckAndRequest with GPS last week, so that's working too.
