Microsoft just rolled out an update for Edge Dev (opens in new tab) that allows you to change the icon for installed progressive web apps (PWAs).

Here are all the new features in the latest build of Edge Dev:

  • Added the ability to change the icon for PWAs or websites installed as apps when they're installed.
  • Added management policies (administrative templates and documentation to come):
  • Added a management policy to control if OneAuth Authentication is Enforced.
  • Added a management policy to control Printing a Webpage Layout.
  • Added a management policy to set an Autoplay Allowlist.
  • Added a management policy to give or take away Feature Flag Overrides Control.
  • Added a management policy on Mac to control if MAU is Enabled, which controls if updates occur through Microsoft AutoUpdate.

The update also includes several new management policy options.
