Microsoft Edge may soon allow opening associated apps rather than site links

Windows 10 Mobile Redstone Builds have been adding one after another interesting changes & features that also enhance general usability in many cases. One more such change “Associated apps with websites” will make its way to some future build and is getting tested internally. So what this feature will allow is what has been on the minds of many Windows Phone enthusiasts for long.

If you associate an app with an website, you can then open links related to that website in the app rather than in Browser or vice-versa. For example if Instagram or Twitter links send you to browser it will rather launch the Instagram or Twitter apps or you can decide that you want them to open in browser. Yes, we know it should have been there since eternity, but at last it is coming with Redstone.
