Multiple File Upload in WebView

I am currently using a webview where I am allowing user to select multiple files from phone Storage. The issue is that the user is not able to select multiple files at once. He has to select one file at a time. I am stuck here. This is what I have implemented so far :

private Action<int, Result, Intent> _resultCallback; public void StartActivity(Intent intent, int requestCode, Action<int, Result, Intent> resultCallback) { _resultCallback = resultCallback; StartActivityForResult(intent, requestCode); } protected override void OnActivityResult(int requestCode, Result resultCode, Intent data) { App.fileSwitchCounter = true; base.OnActivityResult(requestCode, resultCode, data); if (_resultCallback != null) { _resultCallback(requestCode, resultCode, data); _resultCallback = null; } }

`private void OnActivityResult(int requestCode, Result resultCode, Intent data)
if (data != null)
if (null == mUploadMessage || data == null)
mUploadMessage.OnReceiveValue(WebChromeClient.FileChooserParams.ParseResult((int)resultCode, data));
mUploadMessage = null;

        [Android.Runtime.Register("onShowFileChooser", "(Landroid/webkit/WebView;Landroid/webkit/ValueCallback;Landroid/webkit/WebChromeClient$FileChooserParams;)Z", "GetOnShowFileChooser_Landroid_webkit_WebView_Landroid_webkit_ValueCallback_Landroid_webkit_WebChromeClient_FileChooserParams_Handler")]
        public override bool OnShowFileChooser(Android.Webkit.WebView webView, IValueCallback filePathCallback, FileChooserParams fileChooserParams)
            var appActivity = Xamarin.Forms.Forms.Context as MainActivity;
            mUploadMessage = filePathCallback;
            Intent chooserIntent = fileChooserParams.CreateIntent();
            appActivity.StartActivity(chooserIntent, FILECHOOSER_RESULTCODE, OnActivityResult);
            return true;
