I have a use case in which I need to open a app content via deep link within the same app.
For example :
App is a chat based app. In which in deep link will be send from any x user in activity A and when receiving user clicks the deep links another activity B (obliviously associated with the deep links) has to be get launched.
It's possible (apps can register themselves to handle particular URLs), but we don't know enough to say whether it is a good idea in this case. For a chat app - which has an associated server-- the usual approach would be for the server to send a notification to the other user.
