Android App crashes when testing release build (apk) but works in expo

When I run the app on the real phone I get these errors

java.lang.RuntimeException: Unable to get provider com.google.android.gms.ads.MobileAdsInitProvider: java.lang.IllegalStateException:

Hi. So you’re using AdMob?

Did you add the App ID to app.json?
