Is there a way to open Contacts app from Expo?

I managed to load contacts using Contacts.getContactsAsync but I wonder if there is a functionality to open Contacts app for both iOS and Android to select a contact and then import selected contact into Expo app?

Hey @kuskusaeva,

I think you may be able to open up the Contacts app with Linking on iOS and IntentLauncherAndroid, but you won’t be able to do any importing back into the Expo app with a standard Expo project. Implementing that functionality would likely require detaching and writing some native code or relying on a third party library if it’s available.
