How to focus a touchable in useEffect on Android

Hey guys,

I’m trying to get a TouchableOpacity to get focus after render. I tried to use refs and trigger focus from useEffect. It works on a web browser but not an Android device - the focus is never called.

import React, { useRef, useEffect, useState } from 'react';
import {Text,TouchableOpacity,View} from 'react-native';

export default function App() {
  const [focused, setFocused] = useState(0);
  const touchableRef = useRef();

  useEffect(() => {
  }, []);

  const setFocusedElement = () => {

  return (
      <TouchableOpacity ref={touchableRef} onFocus={() => setFocusedElement()}>
        <Text>Hello, I should be focused. {focused}</Text>

Here is a snack showing the issue. You can see that it focuses on web but not on an Android device. frisky waffle - Snack
