PWA Omnibox Install Button

In Chrome 76, we’re making it easier for users to install Progressive Web Apps on the desktop, by adding an install button to the address bar, sometimes called the omnibox.

PWA Omnibox Install Button

If your site meets the Progressive Web App installability criteria, Chrome will show an install button in the Omnibox indicating to the user that your PWA can be installed. If the user clicks the install button, it’s essentially the same as calling prompt() on the before installing prompt event; it shows the install dialog, making it easy for the user to install your PWA.

See Address Bar Install for Progressive Web Apps on the Desktop for complete details.

More control over the PWA mini-infobar

On mobile, Chrome shows the mini-infobar the first time a user visits your site if it meets the Progressive Web App installability criteria. We heard from you that you want to be able to prevent the mini-infobar from appearing, and provide your own install promotion instead.

More control over the PWA mini-infobar

Starting in Chrome 76, calling preventDefault() on them before install prompt event will stop the mini-info bar from appearing.

Faster updates to WebAPKs

When a Progressive Web App is installed on Android, Chrome automatically requests and installs a Web APK. After it’s been installed, Chrome periodically checks if the web app manifest has changed, maybe you’ve updated the icons, colors, or changed the app name, to see if a new WebAPK is required.

Starting in Chrome 76, Chrome will check the manifest more frequently; checking every day, instead of every three days. If any of the key properties have changed, Chrome will request and install a new WebAPK, ensuring the title, icons &other properties are up to date.

Make sure you read the detailed guide about updating WebAPKs here.

Dark Mode

Many operating systems now support a dark mode, or dark theme.

The prefers-color-scheme media query, allows you to adjust the look and feel of your site to match the user’s preferred mode.
