Edge Extension Submission Fail due to Distinct Function & Value RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to publish edge extension (unlisted for testing only) but it is failing due to the following reason:

    1.1.2  Distinct Function & Value; Accurate Representation

     The product references another browser. Please remove the instances. Steps to reproduce: 1 - Launch Edge. 2 - Access Google Slides. 3 - Create a new Slide. 4 - Press on Slido in the top   toolbar. 5 - Create New Session. 6 - Notice the reference to other browsers.

    The extension's aim is to extend our Google Slides editor add-on. Add-on is able to detect if the extension is installed or if it's possible to install it. Currently we only support Chrome so if we detect that we don't have the extension installed and we are in Chrome browser, Google Slides sidebar displays the message which is suggesting to install Chrome extension.

     

    Reason which is causing submission to fail is not even caused by the extension itself, it's different application (Google Slides add-on) which is referencing other browser.

    We would like to display different messages for Chrome and Edge browsers but currently we are not able to differentiate between Chromium Edge and Chrome browser due to Edge's user agent overriding for docs.google.com If you open edge://compat/useragent in your Edge you will see that the docs.google.com.

    I emailed to reportap@microsoft.com and was told that I need to publis an extension as hidden and add this information as a test notes but still extension submission failed. Is there any workaround for publishing this extension only for testing?
