Reporting bug: Edge is supposed to open the twitter app when we click on a link associated to twitter, but it doesn't do this in both Windows and Android, instead it just opens a new tab, I have asked other users, they had the same problem too.

I'm on the latest stable versions of Edge.

 

So please reply if anyone has a solution for this.

 

Thank you :)

@Abhiram thanks for reporting this. We are actually working on this as a new feature for PWAs in the browser. It's a relatively complex feature, so we are working carefully with Google engineers as well as security folks to make sure we build something that will work safely the way users expect.
