Sending SMS from device (android)

#1

Hi,

I looked through Expo’s documentation and didn’t see anything about accessing the native SMS capabilities. I’m using Expo through CRNA, and I was wondering if my only option for adding something like https://www.npmjs.com/package/react-native-sms-android is ejecting. I would appreciate if anyone knows a different way of achieving this or if this capability is coming in a future update!

You can probably do something with deep linking where you use the sms: protocol.

I’m not familiar with Android’s SMS integration stuff so that’ may not do exactly what you need

I apologize as I’m fairly new to react native in general, do you have any links on deep linking that I could use to see if this implementation might work?
