Hi,

We are currently enrolling Android Enterprise Fully Managed User Devices, we enroll the new Microsoft Edge browser as managed app/browser, we also enroll a Web App/Shortcut created in the Managed Google Play store.

Is there a possibility to force the Web App/Shortcut to open the URL in the managed Microsoft Edge Browser?

On an Android device there usually is an option to set the default browser, is there a possibility to set this option through Intune?

    @SJ31 , Based on my research, we can set Edge as the default browser by setting "com.microsoft.intune.useEdge" as true. Here is an article for the reference:

    Note: Non-Microsoft link, just for the reference.

    Hope it can help.

    App protection policy also offers a way to restrict URLs to be opened using Managed App in this case it is Microsoft Edge.
