Silent push notifications with Expo

Please provide the following:

  1. SDK Version: 39/40
  2. Platforms(Android/iOS/web/all): Android

Is it still impossible to implement a silent notification?
I mean background push handling without any user interaction.

I have studied a lot of similar issues and have not found any solutions or even Expo plans to support this feature except this ccheever’s response.

Is I’m right that the only solution is eject the Expo and go on an independent voyage across the seas of React-native?
