That would be great if we could whitelist User Agent used by the apps.

Here are a sample of the an Android UA:
wp-android/2.6.4 (Android 4.3; en_US; samsung GT-I9505/jfltezh)
wp-iphone/4.6.1 (iPhone OS 8.1.2, iPhone) Mobile

I'm unable to duplicate this on an Android, and the user agents provided don't trigger Browse Happy.


Both the update & insecure flags are false, and there's nothing in the UA to identify it as Chrome..

Sent that a little early..
The Browser within the Android app doesn't use the wp-android/ user-agent, on my device it uses this:

Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; Android 6.0; Nexus 5 Build/MRA58K; wv) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/4.0 Chrome/45.0.2454.95 Mobile Safari/537.36

which is detected as Mobile Safari

Can you post the user agents in question for the Nexus 7? I have a feeling that it really is an outdated version that needs updating.
