Use camera, gallery and files in the same view

Hi All,

I have used Xam.Plugin.Media and Xamarin.Plugin.FilePicker to pick photos and files which are working perfectly. Those plugins popup native app when we perform certain operation.
Rather than opening apps separately I would like to make all these options available in a single view.
In that view user can decide what he is going to do, whether taking a photos, picking a photo from gallery or picking a file.
I have attached a sketch of this.

Action flow : User click add an attachment button in app. Then this new view will pop up which have all these three options in place. Once user perform an action this view will be closed.

Is this possible?

    I don't think it's possible , the OS would prevent us to do the operation within our app for user privacy .

    We have to open Camera to take pictures , open gallery to pick photo , open file manager to select files .
