Although the official Firebase JS SDK will work with React Native; it is mainly built for the web and has a limited feature-set compared to native.
Using the native Firebase SDKs with React Native Firebase allows you to consume device SDKs which don't exist on the Firebase JS SDK - for example; Remote Config, Performance Monitoring, Dynamic Links, Analytics and more (see the feature table below for comparison).
The Web SDK column indicates what modules/functionality from the Web SDK are usable within React Native.
'?' indicates partial support
|Firebase Features||v5.x.x||Web SDK|
|-- Phone Auth||✅||✅|
|-- Multiple Apps||✅||✅|
|Cloud Messaging (FCM)||✅||❌|
|-- Offline Persistence||✅||?|
