Open play store app

Hi All,

How can I open my other play store app when button click? Any ideas?

Hi TheKelsam, Thanks for your quick reply. I think this example shows how to open already installed app. In my case I want to open my other app in Playstore.

Ah, then this is all you need:

_ = Microsoft.Maui.ApplicationModel.Browser.OpenAsync("", Microsoft.Maui.ApplicationModel.BrowserLaunchMode.External);

If the link you provide is a Google Play app (like the one in the example), it will be opened using the Google Play app instead of a web browser.

Note: if you’re using MonoGame 3.8.1, you will need <UseMauiEssentials>true</UseMauiEssentials> in your .csproj. If you’re using an earlier version of MonoGame, you’ll need Xamarin Essentials instead (and will need to look up the “open browser” function within Xamarin docs).

Trying this worked fine in the emulator but on my Phone (Android 13) i got a NotSupportedOptionException.

changing Microsoft.Maui.ApplicationModel.BrowserLaunchMode.External to Microsoft.Maui.ApplicationModel.BrowserLaunchMode.SystemPreferred worked for me.

Check this post. I have explained how to solve this
