BackgroundFetch Error: evaluating '_ExpoBackgroundFetch.default.registerTaskAsync'

Please provide the following:

  1. SDK Version: 44.0.0
  2. Platforms(Android/iOS/web/all): Android
  3. Add the appropriate “Tag” based on what Expo library you have a question on.

I made a simple weather app and I’m trying to set up a way for it to update in the background. I followed the docs and requested help via the Expo discord for the past 3 days, but haven’t been able to progress.

Code - BackgroundFetchTest -
Error: TypeError: undefined is not an object (evaluating '_ExpoBackgroundFetch.default.registerTaskAsync')

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Hey @ekarni, I don’t see any imports for either the expo-background-fetch or expo-task-manager modules in your code. Can you ensure you’ve installed them and imported them properly in your project.

If you have, can you create a public github repo so we can simply clone the code and run it locally without any additional steps.
