Manifest's display Property Is Set


When your app is launched from the homescreen, you can use the display property in your Web App Manifest to specify the display mode for the app.


Add a display property to your Web App Manifest and set it to one of the following values: fullscreen, standalone, or browser.

  "display": "fullscreen",

See MDN's reference for the display property for more information on each of these values.

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 the display property exists and that it's value is fullscreen, standalone, or browser.

The manifest that Lighthouse fetches is separate from the one that Chrome is using on the page, which can possibly cause inaccurate results.
