Description of the issue:
When I open a youtube link on brave it didn’t open in the youtube app, is opened in brave directly. This not working in my new Pixel 4, it works in other mobile phones.

All configs are in place in all mobile phones I’ve tested:

  • Play video in background: Disabled
  • Website configs -> play video in Brave: Disabled

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Open Brave and search for videos in google or any search engine
  2. Click on a youtube video
  3. The video is opened inside Brave app instead of Youtube

Expected result:
I expected that the video is opened in Youtube app. If I open that kind of links with chrome in the same mobile youtube app is opened.

Brave Version( check About Brave):
Brave 1.15.76

Mobile Device details
Pixel 4A, Android 11

Additional Information:
Same config in other Android phones works as expected.
