Previous, and now outdates, answer below. I'm leaving it here for reference for how.
This means that you'll have to rely on a third party library for binding other Firebase features into your Expo app. And since those libraries are bridging to the native Android and iOS SDKs of Firebase, there is no way to use them without detaching/ejecting.

You can integrate Firebase Analytics into Android App using
android.googleServicesFile field. Works at least for SDKs 33, 34, 35.
For iOS App
ios.googleServicesFile field is missing in the Expo Docs but still can be used for Firebase Analytics. Works at least for SDK 34. Issue in Expo repo was created: https://github.com/expo/expo/issues/6379
