Google working to add the ability for Chrome to automatically create tab groups

Google debuted tab groups with Chrome 85, bringing the ability to group similar tabs, rename, and color code them for enhanced tab management. The firm is also set to add the option to collapse groups, which is currently available in Chrome Canary. Now, a new Chromium commit has been spotted that suggests that the search giant is working to add the ability to automatically create groups.

 

The experimental flag is already present in Chrome Canary under the ‘Tab Groups Auto Create’ name. However, the feature seems to still be under development as enabling the flag does not activate any features. Another entry for the feature details the possible function of the feature. The verbiage suggests that Chrome will be able to automatically create a tab group when users open “a tab with the same domain as its parent tab”.

Other references in the Chromium entry point towards UI elements to enable this feature, a scrollable tab strip, and more. It is not clear as to what other capabilities the feature will bring when it does make it to all users. While the option to create groups for webpages of the same domain is a nifty addition, it will be interesting to see how the feature evolves, and if it intelligently groups pages with similar content, something that could rival the likes of Edge’s Collections.
