SharePoint Home Sites has begun it's rollout. Anyone here, outside of Microsoft, started their deployment in TR? I'm still waiting. What's your experience so far?

I'm trying to find any documentation on what, if anything, I can customize on the page...

I have setuped a communication website as homesite in my tenant. I am a bit confused about the hyperlink in the app launcher for SharePoint. It leads to my communication website but to https://tenantname.sharepoint.com/_layouts/15/sharepoint.aspx instead of home.aspx of my website. So the end user must do another click to reach the home.aspx of the communication website.

Its that by design or a bug?
My hope was to get rid of SharePoint home with homesite feature as a starting point for the end users!?

Thanks,
André
