All my Android apps put up the App Chooser to determine which app to use 
to open the PDF. Google Drive has a built-in PDF viewer which is pretty 
good, but I'm not sure if it's a default app now or was installed when I 
set up Drive. It's available from the Play Store as a separate download, 
but unfortunately it isn't compatible with all versions of Android. I 
remember needing a third-party PDF app in the past.

It would be great to have an intent to show the App Chooser if you're so 
inclined.
