How this extension works
The Flow Links Extension offers a powerful replacement for the retiring Dynamic Links service and provides similar functionality.
This extension allows you to create Flow Links - deep links that work on both iOS and Android platforms.
Upon installation, a new Firebase Hosting website & domain are automatically created to handle link functionality.
Newly created links are stored in a Cloud Firestore collection.
A friendly-UI Dashboard for Flow Links creation and management is currently under development.
