Google is constantly working on improving its Chrome web browser and is going add another useful feature for Chrome users soon.

The new “Group Tabs” option was recently added to the Canary build of Google Chrome. As the name suggests, the option will allow users to group similar tabs. This is another step taken by Google to ensure better tab management especially for those who open multiple tabs. Currently, the option is just a placeholder and doesn’t actually work but we expect it will be ready by the time Google rolls it out publicly, as a new code commit for tab groups tab context menu option says ” Implement tab context menu option to add a tab(s) to the new group. go/chrome-tab-groups-design.”

This CL is part of the prototype of above-described tab groups feature. The Prototype will allow users to create and manipulate groups primarily via tab context menus and will display tab group affiliation in the tab strip. Future work will include persisting and syncing groups, manipulating groups via tab dragging and a drop-down menu for group headers.

If you’re interested in checking out the new option then you can download the latest Canary build and try it out. Do remember that Canary Builds are unstable so it’s not recommended to use it as a daily driver. Nevertheless, the feature is expected to roll out with the Chrome 73 update.
