android – Link from one app to another in Google Play description

Posted by: admin June 15, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

I have two apps in the google play store. Is it possible to create an http link from one to another in the description of the first?

How to&Answers:

Google Play descriptions do not support links. You can tell the reader the name of the app, nothing more.

Plus, in any case, your app will come under the “Related Apps” and “More from developer” headings in most cases.

Answer:

Google Play descriptions do not support links.

That not true.
You can add links to other application in google play with <a> tag.
For example, link to my app:

<a href="https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.ros.android.android_all_sensors_driver">ROS Sensors</a>

You can look at my description app how i do it:
ROS Sensors

Answer:

We can provide links in play store description using two methods.

<a href="https://www.google.com">Visit Link</a> https://www.google.com

Output in play store app:
 Visit Link https://www.google.com
Output in play store website:
Visit Link https://www.google.com

Note :
 The below code will not make any link in play store app

Visit Link <a href="https://www.google.com">https://www.google.com</a>

Answer:

If you put full url address in app description (with https protocol, not only www) it will be visible as a link in browser.

eg:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=domain.company.appname

Of course google play links to apps aren’t nice so you can use some url converters.

Answer:

A URL of the following form will be converted to a clickable link and will redirect to the address specified in YOUR_URL.

https://www.google.com/url?q=YOUR_URL

eg: https://www.google.com/url?q=https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=domain.company.appname
