Is it possible to download file(s), when app is minimized with expo?

I’d like to know if Expo allows downloading a file if an app was minimized/moved to the background.

  1. I start downloading a very large file or a bunch of small files,
  2. I minimize the app
  3. I return to the app and should see that I have downloaded most of the file(s) by now.

Currently, I see that FileSystem.downloadAsync() seems to be stoped, if the app was minimized.

P.S. Is it possible to use expo-background-fetch for this purpose?
