  1. Have you tried using Flipper for debugging?
    Remote debugging in Chrome works by running JS code in Chrome’s V8 and connecting to the Bridge. We use Turbomodules (which don’t use Bridge at all) so Chrome can’t connect with the native side – this error is expected but could be described better.
    AFAIK Flipper should work with Android without problems on any recent RN version and iOS should work after RN 0.64.

    EDIT: Seems like Flipper doesn’t work with Expo yet. If you need a debugger functionality you probably should wait with the Reanimated upgrade.
