Has anyone successfully managed to add the "Add ______ to Home screen" prompt when using the website on mobile?

Websites are starting to behave more like apps these days, and I've seen this popup several times on different sites using Chrome (on Android).

I tried adding a manifest.json information via the link: https://biology-forums.com/favicons/manifest.json though it doesn't seem to work.

Reading through this, It seems simple to do with chrome, idk about other browsers, they're probably similar though

Also It doesn't just create an app for mobile, but also for desktop
