Hi Jungkee,

I can understand that services may provide different UIs for the two pickers.
I can also see why some client applications may prefer using one picker or the other.
But it is not clear to me why a service provider should provide one or the other picker, if the difference mostly lies in the output being one or multiple and metadata is more or less rich.
I may lack some past discussion context here.

As of my last comment, there is probably a misunderstanding.
I am not pushing for pick media intent filtered selection based on mime type.
Although that may be handy, browsers will anyway find good ways of handling that for their users.
I was suggesting that an application could state to the service provider whether it wants images, videos, audios or a mix.
That may help the provider page optimize its communication (please send me only images), user interface (go directly to my music folder)...

Regards,
	Youenn
