Thanks for confirming Emil.

David, yes, federation is one solution but it does not cover all use cases.
One use case is prompting for a second factor before sensitive operations,
a full page redirect to the IdP might not be the desired UX.

And yes, Android already supports something like you describe. You have to
include the Android app in the asset links file with the right relationship
type. Not sure if iOS has anything similar yet.
