Google has rolled out patch to its phone-making partners, which deal with exploits through Google Play. This could result in many of the apps (with any kind of accessibility to the system), to reconfirm permissions in accordance with the new rules.
I wouldn't worry that much about known and reputable apps, downloaded from Google Play. Google doesn't actually share that much info. Some is just required for many services within the app to run.
Or permission to access gmail info, which pretty much gives user name and e-mail address, in order to verify the paid app against registered device. Google doesn't share all that much beyond that. You can find the list of things google does share, on their site, all of which, very negligible.
Not that I say to take security likely, but some of the permissions only sound scary. Keep in mind, all the "SHARE" features, recording video, texting, moving photos or any other content from an app to gallery or social media, and vice versa, all require write, read, modify storage... and whatnot permissions, but they are nothing more, than app basic functionality.
You can decline the access to an app you don't really trust, or app you got from outside of Google Play, but an app that is reputable, why not.
All I'm saying is, don't read too much into it.
