Expo install package / Release channel


According the expoKit documentation, I have to publish my app before build and upload it on the mobile stores .
The issue is my new version depends now on a new expo package (Localize). Are my users will be updated (OTA) with the new published version or the release channel workflow will skip this update (is plateform compatible) ?

Thanks by advance,

If the release-channel is different (the default release channel if you don’t specify is default), than the release in the stores won’t OTA update to it. When a mobile store build will only update to the same release channel.

The docs show having a version number you can increment to accommodate such changes.

Note: I’ve had trouble with an older Expo version being published after a newer one, so I’ve found putting the Expo version in the release channel as well to be helpful.
