Image Picker returns this message on my Pixel 7A : "This app can only access the photos you select"

When I click the image picker on my Pixel 7A I can’t take a picture but only select from my library. It gives this message: “This app can only access the photos you select”

This is probably an Android Security thing but I can’t get it to work.

The app should allow it because it works on my other Android phone.
Also using the file upload component I am actually able to take pictures and upload them on my Pixel 7A.

Any one else had this issue? Or knows a fix?

Many Thanks!


Check your app permissions for Chrome and see if it has camera access.

Hi Jeff this seems to be ok right?

That looks fine. If you open your browser and go to Settings → Site Settings → Camera, is the switch turned on? Any sites that are blocked?

Other than that I’m not really sure what else to check.

Thanks Jeff these are my site settings

That looks fine too. That’s all I can think of unless there is something specific to the Pixel that I don’t know about.

The Pixel is known for its latest stock android version and frequent updates. Perhaps a new android security thing? But I don’t know where to look.

Thanks for the support anyways!
