It was discussed at the Matrix room that, unlike iOS, Android fails to fetch the instance's custom set icon when installing the website as a WebApp.

However, after checking it, I have discovered that this faulty behavior is not exclusive to Android: Chromium browsers on Windows also fallback to the software's logo, and Firefox, using the FirefoxPWA extension, behaves the same on both Windows and Linux.

I cannot confirm nor deny this behavior on MacOS, however, as I have no device running it, but so far, this makes iOS the only place where the WebApps are properly detected at install time

I have just checked using MacOS and can confirm the WebApp does not use the Custom Icon for the app

So that confirms that iOS is the only thing entirely that actually gets the WebApps right
