Expo publish affecting older versions

Please provide the following:

  1. SDK Version: 42
  2. Platforms(Android/iOS/web/all): all

I previously understood that expo publish would only affect applications running the same version using same release channel. I.e, if I published for v4.6.0 on release-channel production, only applications using 4.6.0 and release-channel production would attempt to pull this update.

I recently used expo-publish for version 4.7.0 of my application using release-channel production, but devices running 4.6.0 (and release channel production) seem to have received the update and crash on start as a result. We started using eas build and certain libraries were added in 4.7.0 that are not available in 4.6.0.

Are updates only bound to release-channels and ignore versioning completely?


the version field in your app.json does not affect publishing in any way only release channel and either sdk version or runtime version does
