How can I add a shortcut with this url to my Homescreen?

https://maps.app.goo.gl/1234567

When I open this URL in Chrome, the Maps Application starts and shows the desired page/activity. But because of this instant redirect from Chrome to Maps it's impossible to use chrome's builtin add-to-homescreen feature for this type of URL.

The final Shortcut should open the Maps-App as Chrome already does. The final shortcut may open my browser just for the redirect into Maps, so a simple URL-Shortcut should be fine.

I tried QuickshortcutMaker but it does not offer to add URLs.

Found a solution.

I use the App "Url Shortcut" and add a shortcut to open Chrome to navigate and redirect to Maps. For this the URL needs to be changed:

googlechrome://navigate?url=https://maps.app.goo.gl/1234567
