1️⃣ Apply for ZEGO AppID

Log in to ZEGO Official Website to register an account, select a scenario according to your actual business needs, and obtain AppID and App Sign for initializing the SDK.

2️⃣ Import zego-express-engine-reactnative (only support react-native >= 0.60)

In your project, you can type in:

npm install zego-express-engine-reactnative --save


yarn add zego-express-engine-reactnative

Next, In iOS, you should cd to ios folder, and execute this command:

pod install

Now, you can use zego-express-engine-reactnative module in your project by using javascript or typescript(recommended)

3️⃣ Add device permissions


Open the file app/src/main/AndroidManifest.xml, and add the following contents:

    <!-- Permissions required by the SDK -->
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_WIFI_STATE" />
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.RECORD_AUDIO" />
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET" />
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE" />
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.CAMERA" />
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.BLUETOOTH" />
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.MODIFY_AUDIO_SETTINGS" />
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" />
    <!-- Permissions required by the App -->
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.READ_PHONE_STATE" />
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WAKE_LOCK" />

        android:required="true" />

    <uses-feature android:name="android.hardware.camera" />
    <uses-feature android:name="android.hardware.camera.autofocus" />

Note: Because Android 6.0 requires dynamic permissions for some of the more important permissions, you cannot apply for static permissions only through the AndroidMainfest.xml file. Therefore, you need to refer to the following code

import {PermissionsAndroid} from 'react-native';

const granted = PermissionsAndroid.check(PermissionsAndroid.PERMISSIONS.CAMERA,

        if(!data) {
            const permissions = [PermissionsAndroid.PERMISSIONS.RECORD_AUDIO, PermissionsAndroid.PERMISSIONS.CAMERA];


Choose the option TARGETS -> Info -> Custom iOS Target Properties

Add iOS Privacy

Click the + Add button to add camera and microphone permissions.

  1. Privacy - Camera Usage Description

  2. Privacy - Microphone Usage Description

After adding permissions, it will be as shown:

4️⃣ Init SDK

import React, { Component } from 'react';
import ZegoExpressEngine from 'zego-express-engine-reactnative';

export default class App extends Component<{}> {

    componentDidMount() {
        ZegoExpressEngine.createEngineWithProfile({appID: 1234567890, scenario: ZegoScenario.General}).then((engine) => {
            if(engine != undefined)
                console.log("init sdk success");
                console.log("init sdk failed");
