Inkwire - Firebase Dynamic Links

In case you missed it, Inkwire is my upcoming remote assistance app.

Anyways, Firebase introduced a "Dynamic Links" feature at Google I/O. This lets you deep link into an app, before the app is even installed. Dyamic Links enabled me to build one of the headline features of Inkwire, which IMHO makes the setup experience super seamless.

You can send your friend a link that requests them to share their screen. If they don't have Inkwire installed, it prompts them to install it, and then upon opening the app, it immediately starts your screen share session. No need to pass around access codes or fiddle with anything else. Check out the video below, the Android on the right doesn't have Inkwire installed when it receives the request to share its screen.

Inkwire Beta (now available):
