I went through a couple of articles and Reddit discussion on this topic. The issue has been addressed well. But the solution does not work for my phone, a Nexus 6P running Android 8.0.0.
Ideally, when you clear the default options in Google Maps (In the Apps Settings) and then try to open a maps link it should show up options of all the Apps that could open maps.google.com links.
I did a couple of checks to understand the behaviour. Note that I have 4 Maps applications: GMaps, OsmAnd, Here WeGo and Waze.
Shortened maps URL:
Upon clicking the URL the options shown were Google Maps, Uber and My Browser.
Complete URL taken from Web:
Shows up Google Maps, OsmAnd, Uber and My Browser.
I saw in the supported URL in
Settings > Apps & Notifications > App > App info > Open by default > Supported URLsthat Waze Supports maps.google.com links and Here WeGo doesn’t.
So, is there a solution for this problem? Would appreciate your help.
