Your site '' has not been linked through the Digital Assets Link protocol

I have created an app link enabled android instant app. But while uploading app bundle to Instant App section in Play store I am getting error as,

"Your site '' has not been linked through the Digital Assets Link protocol to your app. Please link your site through the Digital Assets Link protocol to your app."

I have uploaded assetlinks.json file generated from Android studio to the .well-known folder under that subdomain with sha256 fingerprint got from App Signing section in play store. I've verified those link via android studio and Statement List Generator and Tester( It gets verified in both.

Verified that assetlinks.json file

  • is served with content-type application/json.
  • accessible over an HTTPS connection
  • accessible without any redirects (no 301 or 302 redirects) and can be accessible by bots

My AndroidManifest file


        <meta-data android:name="asset_statements" android:resource="@string/asset_statements" />

        <activity android:name=".MainActivity">

            <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="https" />
                <data android:scheme="http" />
                <data android:host="" />
                <data android:pathPattern="/openapp" />

                android:value="" />
