Android Deep Linking Example

In this tutorial you will learn about android deep linking with an example.

In deep linking first we have to understand what does an URI means. Let us consider an example of URI,


  • https is a scheme
  • is a host
  • /demo is a path, directing the specific resource
  • ?userid=100&client=android is a query string with key-value pairs like the hashmap in java.

Deeplink is defined as a source of content to content web to your android application and in deeplink whenever user opens an URI and if that URI is deep link with any application then it opens a dialog prompt that open with that app or open with browser only.

We can create deeplink over network that is connecting website directly to the application or we can create custom deplink also like myApplication://….
