MediaLibrary.createAssetAsync never resolves

Please provide the following:

  1. SDK Version: 38.0.2
  2. Platforms(Android/iOS/web/all): Android

Code looks similar to the following:

import * as MediaLibrary from 'expo-media-library';
import * as ImagePicker from 'expo-image-picker';
import * as Permissions from 'expo-permissions';

// ...

    const result = await ImagePicker.launchCameraAsync();

    if (!result.cancelled) {
      console.log("result:", result.uri);
      const cachedAsset = await MediaLibrary.createAssetAsync(result.uri);
      console.log("cachedAsset", cachedAsset); // <------ THIS
    } else {

// ...

The line marked with THIS is never executed. It seems like the code throws an error, but even if I use the .catch() or if I use a try/catch, I don’t get any error and the Promise is never resolved.

This is only happening on some specific devices:

  • Works in Samsung A7 (Android 8)
  • Doesn’t work on Samsung S10+ (Android 10)
  • Doesn’t work on LG K5 (Android 9)

Hey @pixmat,

If you are able to consistently reproduce this issue, could you please create a Github Issue with said repro and as much relevant information as you can provide?
