Firebase Dynamic Links are widely used by developers to improve user engagement and enhance the user experience by seamlessly connecting different platforms and devices. These links serve multiple purposes, such as content sharing, inviting users to join specific groups, monitoring marketing campaigns, and more.
Firebase Dynamic Links can be generated either through the Firebase Console or programmatically using the Firebase SDKs. There is flexibility to configure various aspects of the link, including the link URL, behavior on different platforms, and additional metadata.
Firebase Dynamic Links works the same as deep linking. Firebase Dynamic Links are designed to work seamlessly across platforms. Marketers and developers can configure different behaviors for the dynamic link based on the user's context. For instance, if the user has your app installed, clicking the link might open the relevant content directly within the app. If the user doesn't have the app installed, the link can redirect them to a specific webpage or the app's download page in the respective app store. Also, If the same link is clicked on a desktop browser, it can open a relevant webpage.
Firebase Dynamic Links also provide analytics and tracking features. Marketers can see statistics such as the number of clicks, app installations resulting from clicks, and more. This data can help marketers measure the effectiveness of their dynamic link campaigns.
