I just purchased a new BLU G43 cell phone with Android 13. While trying to set it up I tried to add some website shortcuts to my home screen but I couldn't because there's no "Add to Home Screen" option in the drop down menu in Chrome. What do I need to do to fix this issue?

I did try the Opera browser and it had an option to add a website shortcut to the home screen but when I tried to I received a message box that said it failed to add the shortcut to the home screen, which it did.

I really enjoyed the convenience of these website shortcuts on my old phone, I hope there is a way to add them to my new one.

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to Android Central! I wonder if that's a limitation of Blu's launcher. Try installing a 3rd party launcher like Nova, and see if that allows you to create a shortcut.

I thought that maybe this might be some kind of Android Go limitation, but from what I can tell online, that phone has full Android 13, not the Android Go version.
