When you long press a text from browser or other apps that are clickable, normally you will see copy, select all web search and the triple dots, for instance just like on this screenshot below when I long press a text on Chrome browser

enter image description here

Suppose I tap the triple dots, this is what will appear:

enter image description here

As you can see, there are entries which some of those are the apps that I installed, that means, whichever apps that I install and it's available to appear in the list will be listed there.

However, not every app can do this. For instance this dictionary app that has different list:

And this one has Google translate in the front because I installed the app and it has a bit different entries from the list

From the experience like we can force an android app in a dark mode though the developer of the app doesn't provide this feature by turning on the toggle button in the Developer Options in the setting, I'm thinking that it's not that impossible to, for instance, change the behavior of the long press so that I can modify what should be in the list.

This will be very helpful if it's possible. Because when I'm too lazy to open another app and I need a translator, I can just long press the text and the translator is listed in the floating menu.

At first, I was thinking it's just designed by default, I mean, suppose the developer app A is making it possible that the app B will be listed in the floating menu when the user long presses the clickable text. Until I realized that when I install app C, and the app A itself is so old, and unlikely that app C will appear but it does, which means any app as long as it's compatible, they will be listed there.
