iOS - Application is not Recognized as a Browser

Prerequisite: multiple browsers installed (i.e. Brave, Chrome, and Safari)

  1. Open Gmail or some other non-browser app with hyperlinks
  2. Select a hyperlink

Expected result:
Brave is presented as an option for the browser to open the link in

Mobile Device details
iPhone 8 w/ iOS 13.3.0

Additional Information:
If this is the classic “it’s not a bug, it’s a feature” user complaint, would it be possible to have it considered to implement a toggle feature? I’m not sure if that would be possible since this is probably driven by a project level setting or something. But I’m a Swift engineer, have a few days of vacation, and would be willing to look into this to at least assess its complexity if the powers that be are open to the idea.
