Has anyone used twilio-chat with expo?

This bit of code doesn’t work

import * as Chat from 'twilio-chat';

// inside async function
this.client = await Chat.Client.create(token)

This step makes the app unresponsive, and there’s no error in the console, even when placed inside a try block.

After I first installed twilio-chat, it complained about not having access to the Node events API. I installed npmjs.com/package/events (events support for non-node platforms) and that rectified the issue.

Would appreciate any help. Thanks!
