Android Deep Linking with multiple query parameters

I'm trying to deep link my app and have implemented the following in my AndroidManifest.xml to open the proper activity.

<!-- ATTENTION: This intent was auto-generated. Follow instructions at to publish your Android app deep links. -->
<action android:name="android.intent.action.VIEW" />

<category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT" />
<category android:name="android.intent.category.BROWSABLE" />
<!-- ATTENTION: This data URL was auto-generated. We recommend that you use the HTTP scheme.
TODO: Change the host or pathPrefix as necessary. -->
android:scheme="myCustomScheme" />

And I'm testing the activity from adb using

adb shell am start -W -a android.intent.action.VIEW -d "myCustomScheme://myHost?key=category_parent_id&value=92&title=test"

The Activity is opening but the URI which is passed to the activity in the intent is only


Its skipping everything after '&'

I did look up here on SO but didn't find anything with multiple query parameters.

Any help would be appreciated. :)


please add \ before & sign when testing with adb

copy this

adb shell am start -W -a android.intent.action.VIEW -d "myCustomScheme://myHost?key=category_parent_id\&value=92\&title=test"
