Published projects not shareable outside LAN

Hi Expo,

In the past (around last month), when I published my project (locally), it would have a QR code on the project website & my friends were able to open it as long as they had the Expo app installed on their mobile.

(E.g. Expo)

However, today, I noticed when I publish the project (locally), the QR no longer appears and my friends were not be able to open the project outside my LAN.

Has something changed recently? Is this a restriction due to being a free user?

Info:

  • sdkVersion: 41.0.1 (I tried both 40.x.x and 41.x.x)
  • I checked we all have the latest expo app from the play-store/app-store.

recently i m facing the same problem ! did you find out why ?

no, still waiting for expo members to help answer

you can add the ?releaseChannel=default query param to the url to add the qr code back, for example https://expo.io/@notbrent/thingy?releaseChannel=default

we’ll add it back to the default page too. an oversight on our part!
