How to open an Android App link from a webview

2020-03-27 android webview deep-linking applinks

I have an app that can handle app links.

For example, if you have a link such as https://my-app-domain.com/something and you click on it, it would launch my app.

However, if the link was sent in an app that opens links in a webview, my app won't be launched. For example, Facebook Messenger, Instagram and Snapchat all open links in their own webview which takes the user to my website instead of launching my app.

What I'm trying to do is make this link launch my app even it was sent in an app that opens links in a webview.

Thanks,
