Does the Hosts file on Pineapple have any effect on traffic with modern browsers?

Wanted to confirm if altering the hosts file on the pineapple root should redirect traffic from clients linked to the Pineapple? I am not getting any change on devices I am testing with, and read somewhere that modern browsers will default to online Google hosts file services first. Is this a fact now or is there a way to still use Pineapples to redirect traffic?

Thanks

Can't really examine the client setup, defeats the object a bit of the pentest. But would like to know if anyone had any success with the HOSTS file on the pineapple to redirect traffic? And also if there are any sneaky ways to make this sure the pineapple HOST file is used as the reference by the client device.

Thanks
