How To Reset default apps on Android – One of the best options that Android has is the ability to choose default applications for certain things, these apps can also be reset.
For example, we can make it so that when we click on a Twitter link it automatically opens in our favorite Twitter application. If we have already chosen several, we can also reset them in case we regret it or want to use the official one.
The first time, Android will ask us which application we want to use. The popup window will have two options “Only once” or “Always”, if we choose the second one, it sets the default app from now on.
