Talk one: Improve the Experience, Instantly

Sharing is a very important part of any app. Having users that love your app/content enough to share it with their friends means a great success. And it’s a very good way to spread the love, get new users.
In order to ensure an excellent user experience, your users need to land on the right content with no extra effort. Here comes deep linking. When used together with Firebase Dynamic Links, deep linking is a very powerful tool that provides seamless user experience.

Just when you think it can’t get any better, it does - Instant Apps! It allows users to have a taste of your app before even installing it.

In this session, we’ll focus on using deep linking with Firebase Dynamic Links and see how Instant Apps can be used to improve the user experience.
