How dependent is the Expo SDK on the specific RN version in a bare workflow?

Please provide the following:

  1. SDK Version: 44
  2. Platforms(Android/iOS/web/all): Android/iOS
  3. Add the appropriate “Tag” based on what Expo library you have a question on.

I want to add expo to an existing app using RN 0.66.3 in order to use a few modules like Splash and AppLoading, however it’s not clear to me if the strict pairing of RN and Expo are for both the managed and bare workflow, or just the managed workflow.

The docs are ambiguous about this scenario: Installing Expo modules - Expo Documentation they say nothing about having to downgrade React Native to use the modules.

Please advice

Hey @sseppola, we don’t have this explicitly detailed anywhere but the current rule of thumb is it’s best to stay on the version currently tied to the latest SDK versions (currently 0.64). If you go beyond that, you enter the “Your Mileage May Vary” zone where we can’t provide support but still encourage you to report issues that you encounter.
