I have an app on Expo 29, and I have loaded some fonts using the
Font.loadAsync approach from the Expo documentation. This is working fine when I develop the app and if I publish the app and open it through the Expo Client the fonts load correctly.
However, if I build a standalone
apk and install directly on an Android phone, the fonts do not load and my text just renders in the default font.
Any help with this?
Also, separately, I’m having issues using
Roboto fonts in Android. I cannot use variations on this font like
Roboto-thin. I have to download the font
.ttf files separately and include them in the project and load them, but these should be system fonts on Android. I haven’t been able to find any similar issues related to this.
