I have a url that contains my app information and the url is either sent to the user through email or through sms. I want the user to be able to click the link (be it sms or email) to start my app. How to achieve this? I need this functionality for both iOS and Android.

    Hello,​

    Welcome to our Microsoft Q&A platform!

    I find a similar thread about your needs(please search Xamarin Forms App Linking using parameters in SO). It provides the Android and iOS solution about achieve app linking.

    For Android, you can refer to this official article to achieve app linking.
