    Description

      On August 31 2024, a new Google policy will take effect to restrict more the usage of READ_MEDIA_IMAGES and READ_MEDIA_VIDEO permissions. The Camera plugin we use to select images and videos currently uses these permissions.

      Google says:

      Apps that have a one-time or infrequent need to access these files are requested to use a system picker, such as the Android photo picker.

      We should use this picker in our app to avoid using these permissions. Hopefully the Cordova team will do it, otherwise we'll need to do it ourselves in our fork of the plugin.

      I opened a feature request in the camera plugin:
