Expo Blurview on android [Feature request]


#1

Is it possible to implement a blur view on android? My app would require it, but the blur view that is available does not work on android

Hey @axenu,

As far as I’m aware there isn’t a way to do it with a standard CRNA project, you would likely have to eject and either create your own implementation natively or use this library: https://github.com/react-native-community/react-native-blur

It looks like we have a feature request open about Android BlurView support (https://expo.canny.io/feature-requests/p/update-blur-view-for-android) but it doesn’t have much community support. I’d certainly go upvote it, but if you are under a time constraint, I would recommend going with the aforementioned route as there a bunch of higher-priority items in our pipeline and it will likely will be a bit before Android BlurView support would land in the SDK.

Cheers,

Adam
