Key notes

  • Google plans to sync tab groups on Chrome for mobile.
  • This feature, already on desktop, may come to Chrome Canary for Android.
  • You can organize tabs into groups for better browsing.

Google wants to unify the experience of Chrome users, whether it’s on desktop or mobile. There’s no secret in that. Now, folks over at Mountain View are working to bring tab group syncing in Chrome to mobile users as well. 

This feature has been available for desktops since last year in Chrome v. 120. Now, courtesy of @Leopeva64 on X, the browser’s insider community spotted a recent change in the Chromium Gerrit page that hints at this feature. The update says that a flag to enable this feature is coming soon to Chrome Canary on Android.

And it’s pretty much self-explanatory: you can organize related pages into Tab Groups, apply an accent color, and hide them in the top strip. You can right-click on a Chrome Tab Group to save it, or, at least that’s how it works on the desktop version.

Google has also previously said that it’s working on an AI-powered tab organizer on Chrome, among other generative AI features earlier this year. 

While it’s still unclear if it’s also coming to mobile, the premise of this feature seems really nice: click on the down arrow symbol to reveal all the open tabs and click on Organize tabs > Create groups to sort them out.
