Disable tablet support on Android (Critical Feature)

Please provide the following:

  1. SDK Version: 41.0
  2. Platforms(Android/iOS/web/all): Android
  3. Add the appropriate “Tag” based on what Expo library you have a question on.

Hey everybody. I’ve looked everywhere and I cannot find how to disable tablet with the Expo managed workflow. For my last application, I had to go to the Google play website and disable every tablet device individually (there are literally thousands) in order to not eject my application. Even then, new tablet devices could be added and they would be able to download my app that is supposed to be phone only.

So how do we do this? This is a critical feature and it’s not hard to implement as it just requires a few lines in the app manifest. We have an option to do this for iOS in the app.json yet we have no solution at all for Android, not even a hacky one. I would hate to have to eject my app simply because this necessity is missing from the managed workflow.
