i have a react native project with expo and eas update i create the first build of the app and deploy it and create also branch and channel and make an update but it dont know if the app is updated if i will download the aab file again it will contain the new updates? becuase i want to add this update to the google play store so i didnt understand how i update this file…
use eas build
Assume as follows:
- You create an app with
expo-updatesas one of the dependencies
- You run
- You build the app
- You publish it on the App/Play stores
- You then run
eas update ...to make the changes available on the same channel that the app was built with
So basically if you publish an update the user will have to close and open the app twice before the update is applied.
However, this all assumes that you had
expo-updates installed in the app that is published to the stores and that you did not install new dependencies or upgrade the Expo SDK or something like that.
There are more details in the EAS Update documentation.
