App Indexing lets developers markup their content so that if a searcher has an Android app installed on their phone, and the search result comes up, it would link them to the app’s content and not the web page content.
This is now supported in English plus Chinese (Traditional), French, German, Italian, Japanese, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish.
With this, Google announced several international Android apps that support this including Fairfax Domain, MercadoLibre, Letras.Mus.br, Vagalume, Idealo, L’Equipe, Player.fm, Upcoming, Au Feminin, Marmiton, and chip.de. Also, Walmart, Tapatalk, and Fancy added App Indexing in English.
