# D8 roadmap
The Media module will be a vastly different module for Drupal 8. Many of the responsibilities and code that was contained in Media is being split into separate components. For example, the Media Browser functionality is being developed into the Entity Browser module and embedding media in WYSIWYG is being developed into the Entity Embed module. For D8, the Media module will basically be what was considered a "Feature module" in D7: prepackaged configuration, and maybe some code and styling to wrap everything in a nice UI. It will assume that media matches up with a corresponding file entity in Drupal.
Check File entity browser module to see what is possible today. It uses Entity browser and DropzoneJS integration to provide nice multi-upload experience and re-usage of files.
