  1. Open Chrome
  2. Navigate to your Home Assistant instance
  3. Tap on the Menu icon (three vertical bars)
  4. Tap on Add to Homescreen
  5. A dialog will popup; tap on Add

On iOS:

  1. Open Safari
  2. Navigate to your Home Assistant instance
  3. Tap on the Share icon in the middle of the bottom toolbar
  4. Tap on “Add to Home Screen”
