    Cortana just suggested that I watch a trailer, which is awesome. But when I click on it she takes me to the YouTube in Edge (as normal)

    I was wondering, can I get Edge or Cortana to take me to the MyTube app automatically instead of the YouTube page?

    I notice on my Note 5 when I click a YouTube video it takes me to the app. I'd like to do the same thing (but as described above) with my SP4 and/or WP.

    There is a new thing called "app for websites" where an app can take control of website URLs. In theory MyTube could register for the youtube,com urls and then take the link. I believe.

    Perhaps ask them to investigate this?

    Reading that a little more, the first rule will break my idea:

    To enable web-to-app linking you will need:

    • A JSON file that declares the association between your app (Package Family Name) and your website
      • This JSON file needs to be placed in the root of the host (website) or in the “.well-known” subfolder



    Sadly I doubt Google will do that.
