Project created from Expo XDE size over 200mb

Hi , I would like to know why does it show more than 200 mb when I try to move a project folder created by expo
The apk created is also more than 200mb , is there any way to make it less,?

Hello there! In a blank Expo project’s source code, 99% of the size on disk will come from the node_modules directory, which contains all of the JS dependencies for your project (the libraries listed under package.json).

A native .apk or .ipa generated by Expo contains the native code for the Expo SDK. In practice this is thinned to something closer to 20-30mb in the App Store or Play Store. There’s currently no way to make it smaller than that, so if you need something below 20mb then you should consider options besides Expo.
