Open URL in Background

Hi, is it possible, on button click to have the app open a URL, but for it to remain in the background as opposed to make the phone switch active screens to the web browser?
I'm making an app to control Arduino Uno Wifi Rev2, where it takes actions depending on the end of the URL. Like "" turns on LEDs, and "" sets the brightness.
But I don't want the web browser to actually pop-up or at at least to be the active app at that point.

Use the Web component instead of the Activity Starter.

Use the webviewer, which you can set as "not visible" instead of calling the native browser.

Thank you both! Got it working quite well.
