Which apps and services are missing in Safe Mode?

Safe Mode is strictly for troubleshooting purposes and it runs absolutely on bare minimums. You can make calls, send messages, and access WiFi in Safe Mode, but no third-party applications and services are permitted.

For example, if you were hoping to listen to Spotify podcasts while troubleshooting, you’ll have to find a different source to do the same. Other services, such as WhatsApp, Gmail, or Zoom would also be unavailable during your stay in Safe Mode.
