Hi community, do we have an expo package that can initiate an immediate phone call or send mail (without further user interaction) for android/ios. The scenario is: say a user taps a button, it initiates a phone call to some predefined number or say user press a button it sends a predefined message to a predefined email.

could you use the built in html element for this?

<a href="tel:5551234567">Call (555)123-4567</a>

and the same for email as seen here:

<a href="mailto:someone@example.com?cc=someoneelse@example.com&bcc=andsomeoneelse@example.com&subject=Summer%20Party&body=You%20are%20invited%20to%20a%20big%20summer%20party!">Send mail!</a>

There’s also this API in expo docs.
