Can I Deep Link from another app into my app?

Yes, you can link from another app into your app, and only your app needs the Branch SDK integrated.

There are 3 ways to embed links:

  1. Embed Quick Link from the target app’s dashboard.

  2. Use the Deep Linking API to create a link with the target app’s API key, making sure to send your API request early enough to account for response time.

  3. Programmatically build the link as a String, starting with target app’s domain (i.e. https://example.app.link), and append deep link keys as encoded query parameters.

Then, to execute in-app clicks:

For iOS

Call UIApplication.shared.open() on the link

For Android

Insert link into an Intent:

Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW); intent.setData(Uri.parse(yourUrl));
startActivity(intent);
