How to open the Google Play Store directly from my Android application

0 votes

In order to open the Google Play store, I have used the given code shown below:-

Intent i = new Intent(android.content.Intent.ACTION_VIEW); i.setData(Uri.parse("https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=my packagename "));
startActivity(i);.

However, this shows a CAV (Complete Action View) following which to select the option of the browser or play store. My objective is to open the Play Store directly without any interference.

By using developer.andriod.com, one can solve this problem by using the market:// prefix.

For Java Users:-

final String appPackageName = getPackageName(); // getPackageName() from Context or Activity object try {
      startActivity(new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW, Uri.parse("market://details?id=" + appPackageName))); 
} catch (android.content.ActivityNotFoundException anfe) { 
startActivity(new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW, Uri.parse("https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=" + appPackageName))); 
}

For Kotlin Users

try { 
      startActivity(Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW, Uri.parse("market://details?id=$packageName"))) 
} catch (e: ActivityNotFoundException) { 
  startActivity(Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW, Uri.parse("https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=$packageName"))) 
}


In using a catch/try block, the objective is for an Exception to be thrown if the Google Play Store is not installed on a target device. 

Please NOTE: That any application can register and is capable of handling the

market://details?id=<appId> Uri,
