Welcome to Microsoft Q&A!
Is there some kind of API similar to LaunchUrlAsync() which I can use to automatically install the dependency application from the app store
I have to say no, there is no API that could do it. Users need to download the app manually from the Store. You could consider adding the feature to the current app.
