This feature provides PWA developers the ability to show a shortcuts menu of common tasks in their app. The menu can be invoked by right clicking the app icon in the quick launch bar after the PWA has been installed on the user’s desktop, or long pressing on the app on Android. This capability already exists for native apps on various platforms (Android, Linux, macOS, and Windows).

Is this feature supported on all six Blink platforms (Windows, Mac, Linux, Chrome OS, Android, and Android WebView)?
This feature was previously shipped for Windows and Android https://groups.google.com/a/chromium.org/g/blink-dev/c/FgzYX7AFbUQ/m/f2i0-f-BAQAJ
Requesting approval to ship on Mac and Linux https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=1248101
The enable-desktop-pwas-app-icon-shortcuts-menu-ui flag needs to be enabled.
Interoperability and Compatibility
No Interoperability/Compatibility risk. When a web developer doesn’t provide a shortcuts member in the PWA’s WebAppManifest, current installation behavior is not affected by this feature.
Edge: In development/Public Support
Firefox: No signals
Safari: No signals
Web / Framework developers: Positive feedback from web developers
Shortcuts will be used as part of the WebAppManifest. Use will not affect performance.
Use will be straightforward, it will only require developers to list their shortcuts in their manifest.
Pre-existing manual WPT tests exist: appmanifest/shortcuts-member/
