Edit tunnel url

I know that I used to be able to modify the url used in the tunnel, so that for example the staging server had the url exp://staging.anonymous.<app-id>.exp.direct:80, which was nice for working in a team.

But now, when I modify the urlRandomness in .expo/settings.json and then start using expo start --tunnel I get this output and it switches to LAN:

Expo DevTools is running at http://localhost:19003
Press d to open DevTools now, or shift-d to always open it automatically.
Starting Metro Bundler on port 19001.
Tunnel URL not found, falled back to LAN URL.
Tunnel URL not found, falled back to LAN URL.

After restart, it launches with another random URL…

So either I have forgotten a step or the CLI has become more strict in some way - can someone help me with this? It would really help to have a consistent, readable tunnel url.
