Depending on your project, you may find that you need to customize the standard runtime provided in Expo Go, either to reduce your bundle size, to use a module offered by developers in the React Native community, or even to add your own custom native code. At that point, you can create a custom development client, install it on your phone, and continue developing.
expo-dev-client is an npm package installable in any Expo or React Native project. Once installed, any Debug builds of your application will gain an extensible debug menu and the ability to load projects from Expo CLI. Release builds of your application will not change other than the addition of a few header files.
