How do I get links to open in app?

Answered by Cody Janus

To get links to open in an app instead of the browser on your Android phone, you can follow these steps:

1. Open the Settings app on your Android device. You can usually find it in your app drawer or by swiping down from the top of the screen and tapping the gear icon.

2. In the Settings menu, scroll down and tap on “Apps” or “Applications,” depending on your device. This will open a list of all the apps installed on your phone.

3. Look for the app for which you want the links to open directly. Once you find it, tap on it to open its App Info page.

4. On the App Info page, you will see various options and settings related to the app. Scroll down until you find the “Open by default” section.

5. In the “Open by default” section, you should see an option called “Open supported links.” This setting determines whether the app can open links that it supports directly. Tap on this option to continue.

6. You will be presented with a dialog box that gives you three options: “Ask every time,” “Open in this app,” and “Don’t open in this app.”

– If you select “Ask every time,” your phone will prompt you to choose whether you want to open a link in the app or the browser each time you click on a link supported by the app.
– If you select “Open in this app,” the app will always open the supported links directly without asking for confirmation.
– If you select “Don’t open in this app,” the app will never open the supported links, and they will always be opened in the browser.

7. Choose the option that suits your preference. If you want the links to open directly in the app, select “Open in this app.”

That’s it! From now on, any links that are supported by the selected app should open directly within the app itself, instead of redirecting you to the browser. You can repeat these steps for other apps that you want to open links in-app.

It’s important to note that not all apps support opening links directly, and it ultimately depends on how the app developers have implemented this functionality.
