new "url" document type is not opening in Android app

Super Contributor

Hello,

 

I use the Groups app on Android (2.4.12.38).

 

When trying to open a hyperlink in the documents library (see https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Add-a-link-in-a-document-library-346b1eb9-1e71-4155-80ca-f8...) I get an error that the pdf document cannot be displayd since it is not a valid pdf document.

 

It seems as if the hyperlink is interpreted as a pdf document (The link does not refer to a pdf, it is a simple web page) while it should call up a browser.

Thanks! Could you also look into another issue I have with the Android app, described in

A list is showing as empty when opening (in the Android app).
