Hey Daniele!

Do you have this category filter in your AndroidManifest.xml file:

<category android:name="android.intent.category.BROWSABLE" />

If you don't have it already, add this and try again. Then, let me know if you have any luck.

Hope it helps :)

yes I'have already added I've try with this code in my AndroidManifest.xml but every time the link redirect me in play store

<intent-filter> <action android:name="android.intent.action.VIEW"/> <category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT"/> <category android:name="android.intent.category.BROWSABLE"/> <data android:scheme="http" android:host="myapp.com" android:path="/view" /> </intent-filter>

thank you for your time :)
