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

0 votes

I have entered the following code to access the Google Play store.

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, it displays a Complete Action View for me to choose the (browser/play store) option. I have to directly access the application in the Play Store.

If you want to link to your products from an Android app, create an Intent that opens a Google Play URL, as shown in the example below.

final String appPackageName = getPackageName();

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)));
}

We use a try/catch block here because an Exception will be thrown if the Play Store is not installed on the target device.
