I have developed a simple application for a class. It works totally fine. Now I have another client, who want the exact same application for his class also. So I have changed the styles and package name, version codes, google-services.json file, etc. In expo start, the second app also works fine.
I have used the channels for building the standalone apps. But now I came across the problem that, when I build the app with ‘–release-channel and --no-publish’, it builds successfully and generates the .apk file. When I download the .apk file and installed on my mobile, it is not showing the changes made in that app, instead it is showing old app.
I have built the same app for the same channel without ‘–no-publish’, it gets published and app works fine. Now there is no point in deploying that update on Google play store as the changes are already present in the app without updating it. I don’t want to publish the app from expo.
Is there any way to do this without OTA ?
