The Android application of the Chrome browser is being updated, which includes a new interface for switching tabs, and a new tab grouping function reported by 9to5Google to help organize web pages opened.
According to reports, after the release of the Chrome 88 version last month, some users are already using the new interface and features, but it does not seem to be used by everyone.
The grid layout replaces the previous interface consisting of a list of vertical tabs and is similar to Chrome’s existing iOS tab interface.
Approximately six tabs are displayed on the screen at a time, and you can slide these tabs to the left or right to close them. Incognito tabs can be accessed via the small icons at the top of the screen.
At the same time, the tag group is similar to the features provided on the Chrome desktop version since last year, and it provides a more convenient way to organize tags.
Grouping tags also provide you with a new shortcut, that is, you can switch between tags in the same group through the menu at the bottom of the app.
On Android, you can organize the tabs into groups by dragging them from the grid layout screen to the other side, and some tabs in the overflow menu can form a tab group, which will open when you long-press to open A new tab for the context menu.
Although 9to5Google noticed that this feature has been launched last week, it does not seem to be available to every Chrome user. However, you can manually enable them via Chrome’s experimental flag.
