Expo CLI is a command-line interface tool that simplifies the development and deployment of mobile applications built with React Native. It provides a set of commands to create, build, and manage React Native projects without the need for complex configurations or native code development. Expo CLI offers features like live reloading, over-the-air updates, and access to a wide range of native APIs and components.

Compared to the React Native CLI, Expo CLI abstracts away the complexities of setting up and managing native dependencies, making it ideal for rapid prototyping and cross-platform development. It also provides a seamless workflow for publishing apps to app stores and sharing them with testers.
