Manifest Contains name


The name property of the Web App Manifest is a human-readable name of your application as it is intended to be displayed to the user's mobile device.

If a short_name is not provided, then the name is the label that will be used on the mobile device's homescreen, next to your app's icon.


Add a name property in your Web App Manifest.

  "name": "Air Horner",

Chrome's maximum length is 45 characters.

Check out Manifest Exists for a list of guides that teach you how to properly implement and test "Add to Homescreen" support in your app.

More information

Lighthouse fetches the manifest and verifies that it has a name property. The manifest that Lighthouse fetches is separate from the one that Chrome is using on the page, which can possibly cause inaccurate results.
