Project url not opening inside expo-app

Please provide the following:

  1. SDK Version: 49.0.0
  2. Platforms(Android/iOS/web/all): Android + IOS
  3. Tag: App Loading , Expo Go App , Project URL:

When building my app all goes well until the project Url get’s generated:


This url isn’t clickable inside the expo app, android and iOS…
Steps to reproduce:
Create a new project with create-expo-app:
Copy files (only javascript) from the old app into the newly created app (omitting node_modules and other files).
Running npm install to update node_modules
Running npx expo start to create a new development server…

What I’ve tried:
-npm install -g expo-cli --force (to update the expo cli)
-enabling ‘display over other apps’ inside my android phone settings, but this setting is disabled…
I’m kind of stuck on this one and I hope someone can help me.
Here’s my app.json file:

Got exactly the same issue, while hadn’t had any problems like this using expo before. App shows in Expo, just doesn’t seem to be clickable. No errors whatsoever. @lightandlovetribe did you figured it out in the end?

I have the same issue. Has anyone figured out why?
