What is the purpose of '<meta name="theme-color" content="color_hash">'

I am attempting to understand changes from Ionic 1 to Ionic 2 and as I am going through the code I noticed: <meta name="theme-color" content="#4e8ef7"> in index.html

I was unable to find any information on this via google.

What is the purpose of this meta property? What does it affect?


I guess it’s just for PWAs.
On Android you can set the color-theme of the browser with this setting.
It’s a really nice feature for mobile websites as headers can perfectly blend in with the UI.
