Switch component not animating when value changes programmatically

When I update the value of the Switch component via state, the toggle transition doesnt work. It goes instantly from on to off and vice versa. However, when I directly click on the switch, it animates just fine.

Is there any way to animate the transition when I switch the value via state? This is what my switch looks like:

<Switch value={this.props.switchIsEnabled}></Switch>
