react-native-android-location-services-dialog-box alternative in expo

By: Mary in React-Native Tutorials on 2023-04-17  

react-native-android-location-services-dialog-box is a library that is specific to the React Native environment and is not compatible with Expo, which uses a different set of APIs for location services. In Expo, you can use the expo-location package to access the device's location services.

Here's a basic example of how to use expo-location to check if location services are enabled on the device:

import React, { useState, useEffect } from 'react';
import { Text } from 'react-native';
import * as Location from 'expo-location';

export default function App() {
  const [isLocationEnabled, setIsLocationEnabled] = useState(false);

  useEffect(() => {
    const checkLocationEnabled = async () => {
      let { status } = await Location.requestForegroundPermissionsAsync();
      if (status !== 'granted') {
      } else {

  }, []);

  return (
   <Text>{isLocationEnabled ? 'Location services enabled' : 'Location services disabled'}</Text>

This code checks if the user has granted permission to use their location services, and displays a message indicating whether or not location services are enabled. You can modify this code to suit your needs, such as by prompting the user to enable location services if they are not already enabled.
