Xamarin.Forms.AppLinks no longer working correctly after upgrade

edited April 2018 in Xamarin.Forms

I was running Xamarin.Forms and Xamarin.Forms.AppLinks using Visual Studio 2015 Enterprise and Xamarin.Android AppLinks were working just fine. My target was Android 7.1.

I upgraded to Visual Studio 2017 Enterprise and Xamarin.Android (HEAD/a78295902). I also upgraded to Xamarin.Forms.AppLinks to and Xamarin.Forms My target is now Android 8.1. I also tried 7.1 and 8.0.

I've noticed that none of the new registered links are appearing in the Google Search bar. One of my old links is appearing in Google Search, but when I click on it, it pulls up the web page instead of Deep Linking into my app. Here is my code.

var url = $"{offerId}";

    _appLink = new AppLinkEntry
                    AppLinkUri = new Uri(url, UriKind.RelativeOrAbsolute),
                    Thumbnail = ImageSource.FromFile("icon.png"),
                    Description = this.offerDescription.Text,
                    Title = this.offerName.Text,
                    IsLinkActive = true


                /// Remove link if offer is expired
                if (dateCheck)

Here is my assetlinks.json.

        "relation": "delegate_permission/common.handle_all_urls",
        "target": {
            "namespace": "AppName.Droid",
            "package_name": "com.domainname.appname",
            "sha256_cert_fingerprints": "MySha256Cert"

Anyone else seeing this behavior? Thanks!
