Recently, Google has been working on a lot features to increase user experience on Chrome. They have included another feature of tab group in Android’s Chrome browser.
“Tab groups”, is one of the best features launched by Chrome as it allows users to be more organized. This feature allows you bunch up your tabs into more useful chunks rather than randomly scattering them across your browser or on your phone, on separate pages. In order to access this unique feature today, you will have to enable a semi-hidden flag in your browser.
How to Create Tab Groups in Android’s Chrome Browser?
The process of creating tab groups is not difficult, start by making sure you’re running the latest version of Chrome on your Android device that is updatable via the Google Play Store.
Then, simply launch the browser and enter this into the address bar: chrome://flags
You’ll be taken to a screen;
Search for “Tab Grid,” tap on the drop-down for the Tab Grid Layout flag, then select the regular “Enabled” option. Then, relaunch Chrome and tap on the box to the right side of your address bar to open up a few new tabs. Now, you’ll see that they’re now organized in a grid layout.
How do you group these tabs?
It’s very easy. All you have to do is to simply long-press on one and drag it over another. Repeat this process to add more tabs to your tab group.
You can also tap into the group itself and use the “+” icon to add new tabs within it whatever fits in.
If you want to group multiple tabs at once then, tap on the triple-dot icon in the upper-right corner of this screen and select the new Group tabs option. Then, you’ll be able to just tap on all the free tabs you want to arrange in a group, and then tap the Group button to make them become new friends.
Finally, if you long-press on any hyperlink in a normal Chrome window, you’ll see the option to open the new tab in a group. Tap it, and the original page you were viewing will now be grouped together with the new link you long-pressed, and you’ll see icons for both at the bottom of your Chrome browser.
This is the easy method for navigating between tabs in your group, and you can also use the “+” icon to the right to quickly add more tabs.
If you don’t like the grid layout or tab groups, you can always disable the feature again using the same Tab Grid Layout flag as before. Simply set it to “disabled,” and your browser will revert to the way it was before.
