How to open Links (e.g. YouTube, Autoscout) in native App instead of browser??

Posted

Hi,

Is above possible at all with Firefox Beta? I'm kinda surprised that there doesn't seem to be an option for it.

Best, Klaus

Chosen solution

(solved on android ) 1-Install Open Link With

To put an end to all your frustrations with Android's link-handling system, start by installing an app called Open Link With.

2- Grant Usage Access

Launch the app, then flip through the set-up guide to get a better idea of how it all works. When you arrive on the final screen of this set-up guide, you should take the time to tap the "Give Access" button. From here, select "Open Link With," then enable Usage Access on the following screen. This will let the app adapt to your preferences to show your most common link handlers first in the list.

3-Force Links to Open a Different App

With that done, you can basically forget that you have Open Link With installed—at least until you need it. From this point on, whenever a link opens in the wrong app for any reason, just head to the Android share menu, then select "Open With" from the list.
