uiopen vs audioread, is there an advantage to one over the other for .wav files?

I am working with .wav files for acoustics. I find it easier to just drag and drop my .wav files at the command line in MATLAB, and MATLAB loads them automajically without me typing commands, using uiopen.
As I understand it, MATLAB recognises the .wav extension and loads the file with audioread, so this is no different from typing at the command line. Is this correct? Is there any advantage to using audioread vs uiopen?

The function uiopen and audioread have two different jobs. While the first opens Matlab files with the apropriate application, the seconds imports a WAV file. I do not see how both are related to a drag&drop of a wav file to the command window.
Using the command windows as drag&drop target is an indirect method and not the purpose of this GUI. So please explain, what you want to achieve and why you prefer this idea.
