I am talking to some people who are building dapps, and they’re interested in the ability to deep link straight into their Dapp in Status from a web link, much like chat works right now.
Is there such a feature and if not, can we add it?

with info on the link and instructions to download the mobile app. What Links Are Supported
https://get.status.im/chat/public/ CHANNEL-NAME eg
https://get.status.im/chat/public/status DApp Browser

https://get.status.im/user/ CONTACT-ADDRESS eg
https://get.status.im/user/name.stateofus.eth Custom URL Scheme
