Is there a way to create an app-icon-link to a non HTTP-url and place it on the home screen? I'm trying to add an icon to auto-join a zoom-meeting.


The idea are to pass parameters like meeting id and password to the app Zoom, that uses the URI: zoomus:// Eg. zoomus://zoom.us/join?confno=123456789&pwd=xxxx

I have done similar on iOS / iPadOS using the Shortcut app.

UPDATE: Maybe it can be done with Google Action Blocks (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.accessibility.maui.actionblocks)

Or this: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.kebab.UrlShortcut

Thanks for advice!

  • Does this answer your question? Creating a custom launch action on the menu

  • No, it seems to work well with files and browser url's (http and https).

  • But not for custom URL's...

  • I think Tasker (or other automation apps) which is mentioned in the duplicate link might work, though I haven't tested it. On the other hand, could you mention what you have tried from the duplicate link?

The App URL Shortcut (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.kebab.UrlShortcut) works excellent!
