Check If Your Native App Is Installed With getInstalledRelatedApps()

As the capability gap between web and native gets smaller, it gets easier to offer the same experience for both web and native users. This may lead to cases where users have both web and native versions of the same app installed on the same device. Apps should be able to detect this situation. The getInstalledRelatedApps() API is a new web platform API that allows your web app to check to see if your native app is installed on the users device, and vice versa.
