“Allow Expo Go to modify this photo” modal window

  1. SDK Version: 47.0.1
  2. Platforms(Android/iOS/web/all): Android

I’ve seen this issue brought up here, on the GithUb issues, even StackOverflow. None have had a response.

Use case is exactly the same: when creating an image, then moving the image to a new album, a permissions prompt is given to the user asking for permission to modify the photo.

Perhaps there’s a missing permission, or a change to the Android SDK. But it’s a poor end user experience.

I’m relatively new to the stack and platforms, but if someone wanted to give me some tips as to the correct permissions, I’d be happy to create a PR for the issue on expo-media-library or other relevant repo.
