Nova Launcher 5.4.1 is out of beta, brings Sesame Shortcuts deep links to everyone

In July, Nova Launcher began testing a new feature in v5.4 beta: Sesame Shortcuts. Thanks to an integration with this third-party app, you could use Nova's app search and shortcuts to jump into a specific place or page inside more than 20 apps.
