Google Chrome on Android Gets a Bunch of New Features

Google is rolling out cool new features on Chrome for Android devices. Android users can now use ‘Tab Groups’, a new layout for Chrome tabs that has so far only been available to desktop users. The new feature lets Android organize tabs into groups.

You can now group the tabs together and follow an endless list of tabs and manage them in a better way. This grid view has been available for Chrome on iOS for some time now.

The new tab ‘+’ icon is now located on the top left corner of the Chrome home page. Google has also placed the incognito tab just next to Tab Groups. You can still access the menu by tapping the three-dotted icon on the top right corner of the page.

As per a report by 9to5Google, the new layout will now let you view six tabs at a time before having to scroll.

Tab groups from grid view will also let users drag and drop one page on the other, thereby forming a group. Users can also opt to open the overflow menu and select Group Tabs, in order to create one.

Long pressing a link also gives users a new Open in a new tab in group option, stated the report.

You can turn off the new layout by heading to chrome://flags/#enable-tab-grid-layout. Select Disabled and relaunch your browser.
