OTA Updates with Different Builds

If I upload a new build to the app store and play store, will the user have to download the build in order to get OTA updates for that build?

The reason I am asking is because I need to create new builds for iOS and Android to test without publishing the update out to my existing user base.


Referencing this stack overflow question but figured that I would ask it here as well.

hi there! you will want to look into release channels: https://docs.expo.io/versions/latest/guides/release-channels.html - the “Example workflow” describes something that would work for your situation
