How to Create Tab Groups on Google Chrome?
Google Chrome has introduced the Tab Groups feature for all users from Jan 2021 (version 88 onwards), which was earlier an experimental feature in its beta channel. Most of the time when working on any problem or researching any topic, we find lots of tabs open in our chrome window. At times we are working on multiple such tasks and the number of tabs open can become a huge number. However, this feature from chrome will help you manage your tabs and help you work on the task at hand more smoothly.
To begin with, ensure the chrome is updated to the latest version.
