To see expo publish changes I've to close and repoen

Expo Publishing is not working after opening the app for the first time, I have to close the app again and then reopen it to see the changes done by an expo publish.

Can anyone help me to resolve this issue?


By default, Expo will try for 30 seconds to download the OTA update when you start the app. If it takes longer than 30s to download for some reason, the app will use what it has already (e.g. from the app bundle or a previous OTA update).

You can increase the time it waits before using the cached version.

It’s also possible to manually check for/download an OTA update and then e.g. show a message to the user that a new version is available and they need to restart, with a button to reload the app.

See the following documentation for some more details:
