Groups appear alongside regular tabs in the tab strip, and any tabs that you add to a group are automatically rearranged in the strip accordingly. You can also reorganize entire tab groups along the strip manually.

Users on Chrome Beta can start using tab groups right now, but Google says it will include tab groups in the next stable build of Chrome, expected to start rolling out next week.

  • What version of Chrome Beta is it that begins making this capability available? I have "Version 83.0.4103.56 (Official Build) beta (64-bit)" installed on my Windows 10 system (slow ring 2004 Insider), just updated, and I don't see any option to create tab groups. Is this a phased roll-out, or not applicable to Windows yet, or what? Will keep checking for updates just to see if it rolls out later today. (Please? I would LOVE to tinker with this, it's something I've wanted for a long time!) Thanks. //Steve//
