How Can Firebase Open Dynamic Links Without Us Having To Change Our Apple-app-site-association File?

We have configured our app to open universal links by uploading an apple-app-site-association file to our server.

Recently we decided to start using dynamic links from firebase, and after setting everything up, it's all working fine, and we can now open dynamic links created in firebase.

What I don't understand is, how on earth (considering that we didn't change our AASA file at all) does our mobile app know how to open google's special dynamic links?

Thank you

Mainly because its on a different domain! You'll notice the Dynamic Link is on something.page.link. When you entered your team ID and bundle ID into the Firebase console, it created a new apple-app-site-association file on the page.link subdomain.
