How do I link to my app's store page on Google Play Store?

Hey there!

I’ve been trying to figure out how I can put in a link to my app’s Google Play Store page, to invite users to rate the app. I already have a normal http link which does work, but it opens the store page in a browser, and I’d like it to open up directly in the Google Play app on the phone. How can this be done?

Furthermore, when it opens the link in the browser, it asks whether I’d like to watch the page in the Google Play app instead, but if I select yes, it gives me an “net::ERR_UNKNOWN_URL_SCHEME” error.
Any ideas on how to fix this?

Best regards

What URL are you using?

Hi Steve!

The URL that opens in the browser is the following:

The URL that triggers the “ERR_UNKNOWN_URL_SCHEME” is:
intent://play.app.goo.gl/?link=https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id%3Dcom.appsheet.whitelabel.guid_1111959f_a473_408a_9ed1_38d040947139#Intent;package=com.google.android.gms;scheme=https;S.browser_fallback_url=https://play.google.com/store/apps/details%3Fid%3Dcom.appsheet.whitelabel.guid_1111959f_a473_408a_9ed1_38d040947139;end;

Not sure if the “end;” is a part of the URL, but anyways. I hope this helps

Hmmm… That URL you have is not valid: intent: is not a well-known “URL scheme” (unlike http: and https:) and not handled by AppSheet (apparently). You’ll need to find an https: URL.

@Steve
intent:// is the internal director for the Google Play which in fact should redirect to the app’s comments section in the browser. However, it’s tied to goo.gl and as goo.gl is deprecated a new service is needed. I believe it will be better if @Viktor refer to the Google Play Developer page for that URL.

Thanks to both of you for your answers! I’ll try to head over to Google for some help on the issue.

@Viktor I also had this Error Message. After installing Google Chrome, it worked.
