Description Tom Opgenorth 2015-11-05 16:32:17 UTC
Android 6.0 introduces support for app-linking. Part of this requires setting the `android:autoVerify` property on an intent filter, for example:

<intent-filter android:autoVerify="true">
	 <action android:name="android.intent.action.VIEW" />
	 <category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT" />
	 <category android:name="android.intent.category.BROWSABLE" />
	 <data android:scheme="http" android:host="www.android.com" />
	 <data android:scheme="https" android:host="www.android.com" />

To read about this property, please see Google's app-linking guide, specifically the section on "Enabling automatic verification":

Done. Basically anything that is NOT documented on developer.android.com [*1] will not be added until notified like this. Thanks.
