What is the point of `expo install`?

Greetings!
In some docs I’ve seen, I’ve been instructed to run expo install [ package name]. Curiously, I’ve had a look through the code of the expo cli, but I’m still scratching my head on what the difference is between yarn install and expo install. Could anyone shed some light?

We may need some more docs in this area.

Cheers,
Nathan

Hey @nathansimpson,

expo install ensures that the package you download is the appropriate one that is compatible with the SDK version your project is running.

Cheers,
