Help: How do I Remove default EXPO Splash screen


I’m trying to get rid of the default Expo splash screen that displays when a built app opens - ex: an app that opens after running expo build:android. Pic is below.

My app.json is configured as follows:

    "expo": {
        "name": "MY APP",
        "description": "MY DESC",
        "splash": {
            "resizeMode": "contain",
            "backgroundColor": "#ffffff"
        "updates": {
            "fallbackToCacheTimeout": 0
        "assetBundlePatterns": ["**/*"]

and my app.config.js is configured as follows:

import 'dotenv/config';

export default {
    name: 'MY APP',
    slug: 'my-app',
    icon: './assets/icon.png',
    version: '0.0.4',
    orientation: 'portrait',
    extra: {
        API_URI: process.env.API_URI,
    android: {
        package: 'com.my_app,
        versionCode: 4,
        permissions: [],
    ios: {
        bundleIdentifier: '',
        buildNumber: '0.0.4',
        supportsTablet: true,

Am I missing something obvious here? I removed the splash.png file and removed the reference to it. I want just a blank white background.

if I am not mistaken, there is a file splash.png in your assets folder, replace it with your splash.png
