expo-media-library album path

Please provide the following:

  1. SDK Version: 46
  2. Platforms(Android/iOS/web/all): Android (for now, did not test in iOS)
  3. Add the appropriate “Tag” based on what Expo library you have a question on.


I have an application where I need to create an album, add assets to it and store these assets uris in the database so I can retrieve it later and show in an react-native component.
The assets are obtained from expo-image-picker (library or camera) and I use its uri to create an asset to add to the album.
The problem that I’m facing is that when I create an asset it is created in the device DCIM folder, then I add it to the album with copyAsset set to false.
But in this point I do not have any info of the uri of the asset that I just added to the album (except for the info from the DCIM folder). The Album also does not give information of its path in the system, therefore I even can’t “build” a uri with the album.path + asset.fileName or something like this.

Am I missing something in the docs?

I guess that a path prop in the Album would solve this problem. Or even addAssetsToAlbumAsync return the new assets infos.
