#32964 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Site Icon: Add 192x192 site for Android devices

Reported by: kraftbj Owned by: obenland
Milestone: 4.3 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 4.3
Component: Customize Keywords: has-patch
Focuses: Cc:


Android uses 192x192 for home screen tiles and for favicons used when using the application switcher to change Chrome tabs.

Currently, if a 192x192 size is not provided, it falls back to Apple icon meta; however, this is deprecated and noted to be removed in a future version (https://developer.chrome.com/multidevice/android/installtohomescreen#icon)

See #16434 (master ticket)

32964.2.patch amends the unit tests to account for a new default size. Ran phpunit on a fresh copy of trunk, then with 32964.patch, then again with .2 to confirm that the original patch invalidated the tests and the .2 resolved.

If we can get all cell phone makers to use the same power connection (Apple being the hold out on this go round), then we can ask them to please just agree on something together :)

In 33202:

Site Icon: Add Android-specific app icon.

Falling back to Apple app icons is deprecated behavior and will not work
forever. 192px is the recommended size for that icon.

Props kraftbj.
Fixes #32964.
