Mobile navigation support for O365 Hub Site provided navigation
Now when it is possible to create hub sites in addition to communication sites in O365 tenants which are in targeted release mode it seems that concept is initially missing mobile navigation support for navigation provided by hub site.
When you navigate either hub site itself or any other site connected to hub the UI only offers mobile navigation for current communication site and O365 global navigation.
I really like to see ready made and responsive solution for mobile navigation in hub site level navigation also.
The SharePoint mobile app displays the hub navigation. Also when visiting sites on mobile web browsers the navigation also appears

So vital but still missing
We simply can't take hub site navigation seriously without mobile support.

I confirm that the root site link is not working on the Hub Site navigation in Mobile view...
How Microsoft can skip such an obvious behavior??? This is clearly a bug that should not take long to fix...

Navigation on mobile really doesn't work well... You have no option to go back to the hub site home, and if you add in the standard quick launch navigation on a site to get round this, you see a recycle bin URL, but only on mobile...

When you view a hubsite in mobile view the hamburger menu for navigation don't show the root hubsite link. So when you click on other menu items there is no way to navigate to the root hub page.
Please fix this.

When you are viewing a site connected to a hub site in a mobile browser, such as Chrome or Safari, the Hub Site Navigation Name does not appear to be a link to the Hub site. However, when you are viewing the same site in the SharePoint mobile app the Hub Site Navigation Name is a clickable link that brings you to the Hub site.
I would like to see the same navigation experience you have in the mobile app brought to the mobile browser. This way we do not need to add a link to the global navigation that point to the Hub site.

The navigation is available behind the "burger" icon in the top left corner while browsing with mobile devices. However, that navigation does not allow navigation to the hub site's root site itself! The root navigation node only expands and collapses. All the other navigation nodes do work. They expand, collapse and allow the actual transition to happen.
I believe this is working. Although the UI doesn't make it very clear where the primary nav is. I wonder if the default could be an expanded hub site nav and a better delineation between it and the current site nav menu items.
