What happens if Expo's servers are interrupted


#1

Hello, I have an application that’s ready for production and just had a couple questions regarding expo itself. Once our app is deployed and has a user base, how are our user’s affected if the servers at expo unexpectedly go down? Will the app cease to operate or will user’s just be unable to receive OTA updates for the time being?

Thanks!

the app will continue to work as expected, it doesn’t depend on the servers being available. you’re right that users will be unable to receive OTA updates if expo servers are unreachable.

additionally, i recommend making OTA updates all async which you can do by setting updates.fallbackToCacheTimeout to 0 in app.json (like this). this is the default config in app.json for new projects but you might just want to double check that it’s there.
