  • Google is working on a “Tab Declutter” feature for Chrome on Android.
  • Tabs that have been unused for a long time will be archived.
  • You’ll be able to restore or delete archived tabs from an archived tabs list.

Is Chrome on your Android phone being overrun by tabs you haven’t closed out of? Google may release a feature that could help declutter the mess.

As spotted by 9to5Google, strings of code in Chromium — a free and open-source web browser project maintained by Google — reference a “Tab Declutter” feature built for Android. The feature appears to be locked behind some flags.
