You can now group your Google Chrome tabs thanks to a feature called Tab Groups. Google Chrome Tab Groups let you organize your tabs, whether by topic, task, or progress. You can even use emojis as names for your Google Chrome Tab Groups.
As detailed in a post on The Keyword, Google has finally added a way to organize your tabs. Tab Groups lets you group your tabs together and label them with a name and color. You can also move and reorder your tabs and groupings as and when you see fit.
How to Group Your Tabs in Google Chrome
To group your tabs, all you need to do is right-click on a single tab and click “Add Tab to Group”. You can then move the tab to an existing group or create a new one. If you create a new group, you can assign a name and color to it.
How you group your tabs is up to you. The most obvious is by topic, such as projects or shopping sites. However, Google also suggests grouping tabs by urgency (ASAP, this week, and later), or emojis (a heart for inspiration, a book for articles to read, etc).
A little organization can go a long way. Managing your tabs just got easier on desktop. Learn more about the latest version of tab groups, now available in #Chrome beta: https://t.co/enX8yrjaN9 pic.twitter.com/gebDyzoEo2

Whatever system you decide on, you can add, remove, or reorder your tabs as you see fit. Reordering is as simple as dragging-and-dropping. And when you close Chrome your Tab Groups will be saved, meaning they’ll still be there when you reopen Chrome.
Tab Groups will arrive with the next version of Google Chrome, which is due to start rolling out next week. However, if you want to try Tab Groups out sooner, you’ll need to download the latest version of Google Chrome Beta.
