How to create an instant app for a shopify store?

Hi! I'm trying to create an android instant app for ashopify store. For that i need to upload a file to STORENAME.myshopify.com/.well-known/assetlink.json.
However the only documentation i've found was for uploading assets: https://help.shopify.com/en/api/reference/online-store/asset. But assets have arbitrary urls and it doesn't suit my need.
I know that some shopify stores have an instant app. For example Bailey's Blossoms shop has an assetlinks file at http://baileysblossoms.com/.well-known/assetlinks.json. This shop is hosted at shopify since their DNS A record is pointed at 23.227.38.32.
Guess i've messed something in the documentation or it's simply not stated there. Can you help me with this?

Hi @a11eca,

 

You can set up app links (universal links for iOS) in the the private app settings in the shop admin.

The MobilePlatformApplication resource also allows you to create Android app link verification endpoints through the API as well. These should allow instant apps.

 

Hope that helps!

Hi, 

First of all, where is this link available in the shopify admin?

This is very frustrating even after search it doesn't yield any links to the page.

Kindly clarify.
