Minimize app with hardware back button

In the app I’m developing there is no forwards-backwards navigation. The app basically consists of two tabs. With the current (default) behavior, pressing the hardware back button on my phone triggers the backward navigation, that is switching between the two tabs.
I know I can modify the handler for the back button, but is there a way using Capacitor or the official plugins to trigger a “show homescreen” / “minimize app” button press / gesture ?
