How to share a file to your Expo React App?

Sharing files from an Expo React App is straight forward, and can be done with the Expo Sharing Module. However, receiving a shared file from within your Expo React App doesn’t seem to be so easily accomplished.

Is there a way to share/send local files to an Expo React App - which then receives the file’s local URI and can handle the event?

the expo managed workflow does not support this, here is the related feature request:

you can eject and add this to your app. ejecting just means you can’t use the expo client or build service anymore (for now, we are working on those things). you can continue using other apis and so on.

Ah ok, thanks notbrent.
