The above is the screen shot from desktop app of Microsoft teams application.

I used the following snippet for adding the tabs in manifest file with version 1.14.

"staticTabs": [
      "entityId": "index",
      "name": "Service Shop",
      "contentUrl": "${{PROVISIONOUTPUT__FRONTENDHOSTINGOUTPUT__ENDPOINT}}/index.html#/shop",
      "websiteUrl": "${{PROVISIONOUTPUT__FRONTENDHOSTINGOUTPUT__ENDPOINT}}/index.html#/shop",
      "scopes": ["personal"],
      "context": ["personalTab"]
      "entityId": "approvals",
      "name": "Approvals",
      "contentUrl": "${{PROVISIONOUTPUT__FRONTENDHOSTINGOUTPUT__ENDPOINT}}/index.html#/approvals",
      "websiteUrl": "${{PROVISIONOUTPUT__FRONTENDHOSTINGOUTPUT__ENDPOINT}}/index.html#/approvals",
      "scopes": ["personal"]

The issue I am now facing is that I cannot see the tabs in my mobile phone. I am attaching the screenshot for your reference.

    @Chinnam, Harish Naidu - Thanks for reporting your issue. To ensure the visibility of your tabs on mobile devices, it is important to obtain approval for mobile use in the Teams store. The behavior of tabs on mobile devices is determined by the approval status of your app.
