To enable or disable the automatic tab grouping feature in Google Chrome, follow these steps:

  1. Open Google Chrome on your computer.
  2. Type "chrome://flags" in the address bar and press Enter.
  3. In the search bar on the Experiments page, type "Tab Groups" or "Tab Grid Layout" to quickly find the respective flag.
  4. Find the flag "Tab Groups" or "Tab Grid Layout" (depending on the version of Chrome you're using).
  5. Change the flag's setting to "Enabled" to enable the feature or "Disabled" to disable it. Note that sometimes the feature has different names based on the Chrome version.
  6. Click the "Relaunch" button at the bottom of the page to apply the changes and restart Chrome.


After relaunching Chrome, you should either have the automatic tab grouping feature enabled or disabled, based on your preference.

As of May 2022, the automatic tab grouping feature is not available in the stable version of Google Chrome. However, you can try the following steps to enable tab grouping using Chrome flags:

  1. Open Google Chrome on your computer.
  2. Type "chrome://flags" in the address bar and press Enter.
  3. In the search bar on the Experiments page, type "Tab Groups" to quickly find the respective flag.
  4. Find the flag called "Tab Groups" and change its setting to "Enabled".
  5. Click the "Relaunch" button at the bottom of the page to apply the changes and restart Chrome.


After relaunching Chrome, you should have the tab grouping feature enabled. You can now right-click on a tab and select "Add to New Group" or "Add to Existing Group" to organize your tabs.


Note: Chrome flags are experimental features, and enabling them may cause instability or issues with your browsing experience. Make sure to proceed with caution and be aware of the potential risks.

As of May 2022, the automatic tab grouping feature is not available in Google Chrome. However, you can manually create tab groups to organize your tabs. Here's how:

  1. Open Google Chrome on your computer.
  2. Right-click on a tab and select "Add to New Group" or "Add to Existing Group".
  3. If you select "Add to New Group", a colored dot will appear next to the tab. You can click on the dot and name the group.
  4. To add more tabs to the group, simply right-click on a tab and choose "Add to Existing Group" or drag and drop tabs to the group.
  5. To remove a tab from a group, right-click on the tab and select "Remove from Group".
  6. You can also collapse and expand tab groups by clicking on the group name or the arrow icon.


Note: This method allows you to manually create and manage tab groups, but it does not enable the automatic tab grouping feature. Automatic tab grouping may become available in a future update of Google Chrome.

As of my last update in August 2022, the automatic tab grouping feature is still not available in the stable version of Google Chrome. The manual tab grouping method mentioned in the previous response is still the recommended option. However, Chrome frequently releases updates, so it's always a good idea to keep your browser up to date to stay informed about any new features or changes.
