How to Add Website Shortcut to Android or iPhone Home Screen

You can add a website shortcut to your Android (in this instance, I’m using Android Pie) or iPhone home screen and here’s how:

What Browser Do You Want to Use?

Chrome for Android

Here are the steps:

  1. Open the website you wish in the Chrome app.

  2. Hit Overflow menu (three vertical dots) at the top. Between “Find in page” and “Desktop site,” you can see the “Add to Home screen” option. Hit it.

  3. In the popup, edit the shortcut name if you wish and then tap “Add.”

    Add option
    • Save

  4. Now, if you want to place the shortcut to the home screen manually, use the icon you see right now to do so. Otherwise, tap “Add Automatically” option. In this instance, I chose the latter.

That’s it. Go to the home screen, and you can see the website shortcut.
