WebIntent plugin not installed

I’m currently building an Android app with Ionic 3, where I want to save links which should be sent from Chrome via Intent to my app.

I am trying to use the WebIntent like it is described here:

This is what I am doing right now, but I always get a blank page when it’s opened (my regular content isn’t loaded).

import { Component } from '@angular/core';
import { NavController } from 'ionic-angular';
import { WebIntent } from '@ionic-native/web-intent';

  selector: 'page-stream',
  templateUrl: 'stream.html'
export class StreamPage {

  intent : WebIntent;

  constructor(public navCtrl: NavController, public webIntent : WebIntent) { 
    this.intent = webIntent;

  ionViewDidLoad() {
    let filter = [


    let result = this.intent.getIntent();

Do I use it the right way? Could somebody help me to get this working?
Thank you so much!

Ok, i forgot to add the plugin to the providers in app.modules. But now I get the error ‘plugin_not_installed’, but I installed the plugin. I think this is the same issue: https://github.com/ionic-team/ionic-native/issues/1609 --> Fixed it!

I’m still trying fix this issue. You can tell me more how you get the intent?

I’m also looking for a solution to this issue. I keep on getting the error plugin_not_installed, but Ionic CLI already states that the plugin is installed. Could you explain how you’ve made it work for you?

I tried to apply the fix as of https://github.com/ionic-team/ionic-native/issues/1609, but I had no good results.

Was this fixed? I’m getting this problem as well…

This seems to be an unresolved problem for years.
