Error: MLVisionTextModel duplicate symbols with React Native

    Solved enabling the dead code stripping in xcode for debug. 
    You can enable it in Target > Build Settings > search for "Dead code stripping". 


  1. Open up android/app/src/main/java/[...]/
  • Add import com.mlkit.RNMlKitPackage; to the imports at the top of the file
  • Add new RNMlKitPackage() to the list returned by the getPackages() method
  1. Append the following lines to android/settings.gradle:

    include ':react-native-firebase-mlkit'
    project(':react-native-firebase-mlkit').projectDir = new File(rootProject.projectDir, 	'../node_modules/react-native-firebase-mlkit/android')
  2. Insert the following lines inside the dependencies block in android/app/build.gradle:

    dependencies {
        implementation ''
        implementation ''
        implementation (project(':react-native-firebase-mlkit')) {
            exclude group: ''
    // Place this line at the end of file
    apply plugin: ''
    // Work around for onesignal-gradle-plugin compatibility = true
  3. Insert the following lines inside the dependencies block in android/build.gradle:

    buildscript {
        repositories {
        dependencies {
            classpath ''
            classpath '' // google-services plugin

Usage (Example using react-native-camera)

import RNMlKit from 'react-native-firebase-mlkit';

export class textRecognition extends Component {

  async takePicture() {
    if ( {
      const options = { quality: 0.5, base64: true, skipProcessing: true, forceUpOrientation: true };
      const data = await;
      // for on-device (Supports Android and iOS)
      const deviceTextRecognition = await RNMlKit.deviceTextRecognition(data.uri); 
      console.log('Text Recognition On-Device', deviceTextRecognition);
      // for cloud (At the moment supports only Android)
      const cloudTextRecognition = await RNMlKit.cloudTextRecognition(data.uri);
      console.log('Text Recognition Cloud', cloudTextRecognition);

You can’t perform that action at this time.
