When I am using Chrome on my Mac (OSX Yosemite 10.10.2), it shows the handoff symbol on my iPhone. But when I open it, it hands off to Safari, not to Chrome on my iPhone (iOS 8.2).

How can I make Chrome on my Mac hand off to Chrome on my iPhone?

On another note, when I use Chrome on my iPhone, it successfully hands off to Chrome on my Mac.

Any of the above methods can be used by a jailbroken user to set Google Chrome as default iOS browser while the regular users can
