Hey! Any updates on this? Having the same problem, found no fixes.

What version of the react-native-svg library are you running? We experienced something similar and downgrading from version 9.9.9 to 9.9.0 addressed the issue for us.

That worked perfectly! Thanks!

This did not work for me, BTW.

I ended up replacing all SVG components in Android with Image.There was a bug fix in react-native-svg 9.9.7 that I kinda need. Think that the image thing is a fine solution, but really hope this will be fixed when Expo updates react-native-svg.
