How to Use Tab Groups & Bottom Tab Switcher in Chrome for Android

In the past year, we have shared an article – How to enable lower tab switcher on Chrome for Android. With the bottom tab switcher, Google plans to change the way we switch between Chromebooks for Android.

Previously, this feature was only available on Chrome Beta for Android. However, it now appears that the feature has moved to a stable build as well. It is a tab management feature that adds a tab bar at the bottom of the screen.

The new tab bar lists all opened tabs. In addition, you can use the new tab group together in the Groups tab, almost like a folder. Tab grouping in a folder can help you in many ways. This not only keeps tabs organized, but also provides quick access to your frequently used Chrome tabs.
