React Native Expo Go error


I'm attempting to setup Expo Go to preview my React Native "hello-world" app. I've downloaded to Expo Go to my android phone. Although when I scan the QR code that I receive after runn npm start, I get the "something went wrong." error.

The log say Uncaught Error: java.netSocket.TimeoutException: failed to connect to / (port 19000) from / (port 56586) after 10000ms.

Does anyone know why I'm receiving this message rather than the app preview? Thank you for you help.

Hey Killeon Patterson 👋

I personally don't have any experience with React Native but I found this issue on GitHub explaining a similar error where some of the comments might provide you a solution to this issue you're experiencing 🙂

Hope this helps!
