Firebase is Google's application development platform with tools to build and release mobile apps, monitor and track app analytics and boost user engagements to grow the app further.

Firebase Dynamic Links lets users create in-app and browser-based short links that work on any platform. These links are easier to share with others and great for branding since you can add a custom domain as a prefix to the dynamic link.

In this lab, you will create a URL prefix and shorten an existing URL to a Firebase dynamic link using the URL prefix as the prefixed domain.

  • Create a URL prefix for dynamic link creation
