        I know universal link(Assocaited domains) can be used for web to app communication. Can we use the same for app to app communication?

          Can you explain more about what you mean by “app to app communication”?

              Universal link can be used to invoke the native app from webapp(Safari).

              For example, browsing www.xyz.com can invoke the app "ABC". Can another app "EFG" invoke "ABC" using universal link?

                  Can another app … invoke "ABC" using universal link?

                  Sure.  If you open the universal link URL via -[UIApplication openURL:] (or its successor), it will be routed to the native app if that app is installed.
