  • Name and/or short name: you must provide at least the name or short name property. If both are provided, the short name is used on the user's home screen, launcher, or other places where space may be limited. The name is used when the app is installed.

  • Icon: when a user installs your PWA, you can define a set of icons for the browser to use on the home screen, app launcher, task switcher, splash screen, and so on. Your icon size must be at least 512x512 pixels(recommend PNG image).

  • Display: you can customize what browser UI is shown when your app is launched. For example, you can hide the address bar and browser chrome. Games can even be made to launch a full screen.

    minimal-ui

    This mode is similar to standalone, but provides the user a minimal set of UI elements for controlling navigation (such as back and reload).An example of a PWA window with minimal-ui display.

  • Background color: pick a color that is used on the splash screen when the application is first launched on mobile.

  • Theme color: sets the color of the toolbar, and may be reflected in the app's preview in task switchers. This setting will be also used for the meta-theme color specified in the document head even you turn off the PWA feature.

Please note: You should publish your theme to use this feature.
