Tab Groups allows you to organize Chrome tabs using a colour-coded labelling system. The feature is still in the testing phase and since it is an experimental flag, you will have to enable it yourself. We tested the feature using Google Chrome 80, so make sure you are running the latest version of the browser before getting started.


Before you get started, please note that by enabling a flag, you could lose browser data or compromise your security or privacy. Enabled features apply to all Chrome users of the device.


Here's how to enable Tab Groups in Chrome

Open a new tab and go to the following address:


Search for "tab groups" and select "Enable" from the drop-down menu on the right side of the flag.


Chrome will then ask you to relaunch the browser in order to see the feature enabled. Your tabs will reopen but you may lose any unsaved text or documents, so make sure you save any work before you restart Chrome.


How to use Tab Groups in Google Chrome

Open a few tabs and then right click on a tab and select 'Add to a new group". The coloured circle, which appears on the left side of the tab, represents the group you’ve just created. You can now name it and change its colour.


The easiest way to add more tabs to the group is by dragging them over. Alternatively, you can right click on a tab and select "Add to existing tab" from the contextual menu.


To remove a tab from a group, follow a similar method. Drag the tab away from the group or right click and choose "Remove from group". You will find more options to manage groups when you right click on them.


Please note that this feature might see a few changes before it's final release or it might even disappear from future updates. Make sure you subscribe to our monthly bulletin and we’ll keep you updated.
