How to redirect to an external URL in Angular

In this tutorial, we are going to learn about how to redirect to an external URL in the Angular App.

Normally, we redirect a user to a different page on the same site by using the following method:

this.route.navigate('/blog');

Redirecting to an external URL

To redirect a user to an external url, we can use the window.location.href property in angular.

Suppose we have a /about route in our angular app, when a user visits the /about page we need to redirect them to an external url https://www.google.com/about instead of the same domain redirect.

Here is an example:

about.component.ts
import { Component, OnInit } from "@angular/core";

@Component({
  selector: "about",
  templateUrl: "about.component.html"
})

export class About implements OnInit {
  constructor() {}

  ngOnInit() {
    window.location.href = "https://google.com/about";  }
}

In the above code, we have added a window.location.href = "https://google.com/about" inside the ngOnInt() lifecyle hook.

Now, if a user tries to visit the /about page he or she will be redirected to an external url https://google.com/about.
