What is the purpose of the default intent filters added to AndroidManifest.xml?

Hi all! :wave:

After expo eject-ing from a managed project, I’ve noticed that the generated AndroidManifest.xml file in the Android project folder includes this strange-looking intent filter on the main activity:

  <action android:name="android.intent.action.VIEW"/>
  <category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT"/>
  <category android:name="android.intent.category.BROWSABLE"/>
  <data android:scheme="com.mycompany.myapp"/>

From researching this on my own, it seems as though this would (at least partially) allow deep linking to my app from a web browser…is this correct? If not, what does it do?

MTIA! :slight_smile:
