5-App Links

App links is a feature when you click on a web link in your email or a text message, it asks you what application you would like to open it with either with a browser or an any app. It allowed users to set their own default apps with the frequent dialog boxes appeared every time when clicking on a link. This feature is very much improved in Android Marshmallow 6.0. It has been updated to show a greater awareness whether a link should be opened in a browser or on any app.

For example, if you get a twitter link, it will launch the Twitter app instead of asking you to choose between that and different apps.
