Is there a recording up somewhere for those of us who missed it?

... or if not a recording, a summary of outcomes?

Very interested in Android File Access 10/11 :thinking:

Yes there is a recording. We have to add closed captioning first but once it's captioned I will post the link here.

Regarding the File component for Android 10/11, the gist of that is that we are going to be proposing some changes to the file component as a whole, both w.r.t. Android 10/11 and for the fact that iOS doesn't allow extensions so we want to bring in some new functionality that is currently only covered by extensions (which don't work on iOS).
