In Apps there is an option called "Request app" intended to request an app which is no included in Apps. Inside there are instructions to obtain the package name of the desired new app. It is explained how to obtain the package name chain from a phone in which that app is already installed, but there are no instructions on how to obtain the package name chain if the new app in not installed.

I have just discovered how to obtain the package name chain from the google play website url of that app.
What does it bring?
It will facilitate proper and simple instructions to /e/ users on how to provide the package name chain from the google play website url of the desired new app.
I open Apps and look for "CONAN mobile" app. It is not found. I go to Apps/settings/Request app Here there should be instructions on how to obtain the package name chain form the google play website url or the desired app. I go to the "CONAN mobile" google play website. I copy the url: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=es.inteco.conanmobile&hl=es I extract the package name from the url: es.inteco.conanmobile I provide the package name in the request field in Apps/settings/Request app
It is just and feature suggestion.
