How to Enable Tab Preview Images in Chrome

The new tab previews feature in Chrome 78 shows page title and site address in the preview card when you hover the cursor over a tab. But Chrome also supports tab preview images and you can enable it from the experimental settings page.

Go to the Chrome experimental features page by typing chrome://flags in the address bar.
