Is there a way of implementing periodic background tasks?

I found this implementation: GitHub - jamesisaac/react-native-background-task: Periodic background tasks for React Native apps, cross-platform (iOS and Android), which run even when the app is closed. but was wondering if Expo has a native solution for background processes.

We don’t have this yet, but plan to build it. Please vote on Background tasks support | Voters | Expo !

Ah ok, thank you! Do you know if libraries like the one I linked would be compatible with my expo app?

I think that’ll work if you detach to ExpoKit, but unfortunately background tasks do require native code generally, so until we’ve built the feature it probably won’t be possible while un-detached :(.

Gotcha. Do you have an idea about the timeline for adding background task support to Expo?

as soon as we can, we don’t have any hard timeline right now but this is an important priority


Anyone checked this ???

Based on the original Expo document on the program mentioned, what are your assessments? Please share
