Deep link and app link are two different things. Deep link give you an option to select between chrome and android app to handle the url, where as app link makes your app the default handler for the url.
Inviting the developers to participate and develop an extension where the app is the default handler for the links without giving an option to the user.
editing the manifest was done before to make the deep links with the extension
and I believe @vknow360 the creator of the extension can add support for it very easily as it is like one line of extra code…
but there are a lot of steps other than the app code
you have to have a domain name you own and to have a verification JSON file uploaded to your website to have it work… I think they made it a bit simpler with using google search console but anyways all the steps can be done but we need the extension as it is sadly the one thing out of our control
BTW in android 12 it is a must have as the user doesn’t have the option anymore to select between the app or the browser as it defaults to the browser always unless changed in the settings.
I managed to make it work by editing the manifest file after compiling with the help of deep links extension hoping that sunny could ad it into the extension in the future… if you want to do it assuming you already have a domain name
