I used to be able to click on a link for an app/YouTube video and it'll open within the Play Store/YouTube app. Now it just opens the mobile site. I didn't change my settings at all. It just started happening today. I tried restarting and powering off and no luck. Anyone know how to fix this?

Is this in a browser, or from the Google app, or somewhere else? If it's the Google app, then go to its settings, select Accounts & Privacy, and turn off the "Open web pages in app" option.

What if you go to Settings>Apps, select Chrome, then Open By Default, and then Clear Defaults?

Is there a screenshot I can't see? That's been a bug lately in AC -- sometimes attached screenshots only show up in the app, and not on the desktop site (which is what I use almost exclusively).

The "clear defaults" button is faded and can not be clicked. Since there is nothing to clear.

YouTube links seem to be working now. However, clicking on an app link still won't take me to Play Store app.

Edit: Nevermind. YouTube app will only open if I'm under the "video" section on a Google search.

Okay. I just figured out what happened. It would not open the app if in incognito mode. I've never had this issue before. I use incognito 99.9% of the time and never had this issue with the 6P.
