On Android pie, there is an android icon. Why?

Posted

Just to the right of the home button, there is an button that looks like an android. When I click on it, for some reason it opens up my alarm clock. What is the button for, and how do I change its function?

It is to open the associated Android app with the website. For example if you were viewing the website version of YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xxBQVzUTbzc and you wanted to view the video in the YouTube app tapping on the android should take you to the YouTube app with that video loaded.

That would make sense, if it worked like that, but when I click on it the ONLY thing that happens is it opens up the about page of my AVG Alarm Clock Extreme Pro app.

Did you try to click it on different domains?

It does work when I have an app associated with the domain. When there is none, it will default to opening the About page in the AVG Alarm Clock Extreme Pro app. Can the default behavior be changed?
