THREAD WARNING: ['HockeyApp'] took '11.336182' ms. Plugin should use a background thread


I’m trying to use HockeyApp in my app to push updates directly without having to send an email every time.

When I put it in my app, nothing happens

here is my ionic info

cli packages: (/usr/local/lib/node_modules)

    @ionic/cli-utils  : 1.19.2
    ionic (Ionic CLI) : 3.20.0

global packages:

    cordova (Cordova CLI) : 8.0.0 

local packages:

    @ionic/app-scripts : 3.1.9
    Cordova Platforms  : android 7.0.0 ios 4.5.4
    Ionic Framework    : ionic-angular 3.9.2


    ios-deploy : 1.9.2 
    Node       : v8.11.3
    npm        : 5.6.0 
    OS         : macOS High Sierra
    Xcode      : Xcode 9.4.1 Build version 9F2000 

Environment Variables:

    ANDROID_HOME : not set


    backend : pro

When using Xcode and tapping on the button “force crash”, logs display :
THREAD WARNING: ['HockeyApp'] took '11.336182' ms. Plugin should use a background thread.

Here is my app.components.ts

  constructor(public platform: Platform,
    public statusBar: StatusBar,
    public splashScreen: SplashScreen,
    public api: ApiProvider,
    private settings: SettingsProvider,
    private app: App, hockeyapp: HockeyApp,
  ) {
    this.settings.getActiveTheme().subscribe(val => this.selectedTheme = val);
    hockeyapp.start(null, '--myappid--', false, true);

    //So app doesn't close when hockey app activities close
    //This also has a side effect of unable to close the app when on the rootPage and using the back button.
    //Back button will perform as normal on other pages and pop to the previous page.
    platform.registerBackButtonAction(() => {
      let nav = app.getRootNav();
      if (nav.canGoBack()) {
      } else {


<button ion-item (click)="checkHockeyAppUpdates()">
 <button ion-item (click)="forceCrash()">
          Force Crash

And finally settings.ts

public checkHockeyAppUpdates() {

public forceCrash() {

Does anybody know how to make it work ?

Thank you
