Any examples on how to test react-native with expo and jest?

I can’t seem to be able to run tests nor I can find any examples on how to test with jest and expo.

Could someone point me in the right direction?

I have this:

import { Text } from "react-native";
import React from "react";
import renderer from "react-test-renderer";

it("renders correctly", () => {
  const tree = renderer.create(<Text>Snapshot test!</Text>).toJSON();


but when I run the tests I get:

This is my package.json:

"scripts": {
  "test": "node_modules/.bin/jest"
"jest": {
  "preset": "jest-expo"
"devDependencies": {
  "jest-expo": "^28.0.0"
