I would like to center only the section titles in the beamer metropolis theme, without changing the other defaults (in particular I would like to keep the progress bar).

I have tried the following, which did not work


and the following which worked for the normal titlepage but not for section titles (perhaps I'm using the wrong name?)

\setbeamertemplate{section page}{ % also used section and section title
%  \raggedright%  % <-- Comment here

Answer: I was able to do it by removing the \raggedright command from the section page and include \centering instead before the section title

 % Center Section titles 
    \setbeamertemplate{section page}{
    \begin{center} % add center if missing
    \usebeamercolor[fg]{section title}
    \usebeamerfont{section title}
    %\raggedright % comment out raggedright
    \centering % add centering here to center title
    \usebeamertemplate*{progress bar in section page}
    \usebeamercolor[fg]{subsection title}%
    \usebeamerfont{subsection title}%
