    Just got my S20+ and in setting it up I've been over zealous and disabled the ability for youtube links to open in the app, now they only open in the browser. Is there any way of undoing this?

    So far I have:

    Tried to change permissions and defaults but youtube app settings say no defaults set.

    Uninstalled and reinstalled samsung internet.

    Updated phone software and browser version.

    No dice.

    Sorry if it's been asked before but all answers seem to be for older phones and software.

    Thanks for the advice, however, I tried that and all it did was allow all the apps I stopped notifications for to pop up again.

    Up until Saturday my phone was an S8 and I'm wondering if I'm just assuming the ability to open in app from the browser is even a thing on the S20 as I can't seem to find anything in regards to this function.

    It works fine in chrome, I was a bit taken aback by how smoothly and seemlessly the app opened so thought it was not working correctly at first.

    I'd rather not use chrome but if I have to break a habit I've had since the S3 then I may have to.
