The Edge browser has been updated to build 93.0.957.0. This update was released to the Dev channel on July 21, 2021.

Build 93.0.957.0 comes with the ability to change icons for PWAs (Progressive Web Apps) or websites installed as apps.

Edge 93.0.957.0

You can install PWAs when you see the option available at the top of a browser to do so, but this is only for the sites that offer it. If you want to install a website as an app, you can do that from Edge’s settings menu by heading to Settings > Apps and then clicking on Install this site as an app.

  • Added the ability to change the icon for PWAs or websites installed as apps when they’re installed.
