Hi @JPB 

you can leverage a profile to set the home page location.
Dashboard -> System Manager -> (Manage) Settings, select an existing profile or create a new one and add a setting for 'Managed app Settings', select Android then Chrome.
The key in the schema is HomepageLocation, set the value to the desired URL, save and make sure the profile is synced with the device before testing 😊

HI @SandroNardi 

 

I've been trying what you tell me (that's how I was doing it), but I don't change the chrome home page on my android 6.0 device.

Do you know if it is possible that this option is not compatible with Android? or with this version?

 

Thank you

Hi @JPB 

 

looking at Google documentation the field is supported on Chrome (Android) since version 81

https://cloud.google.com/docs/chrome-enterprise/policies/?policy=HomepageLocation

I'm not sure if that version of Chrome is compatible with Android version 6

 

Try and check the Chrome version on your android device.

 

Cheers

This flag will change the home page on android 9-10-11. 
The issue I'm having is that it doesn't change the "new tab" page that chrome opens to.
I've been looking for a way to apply the key suggested in the documentation "HomepageIsNewTabPage" alongside "Homepagelocation" but can't find a way to do add it, and it's not in the menu. Seems like a pretty common request, I will write a guide on it if someone can provide me with the answer.
