Same or duplicate close other tabs buttons on mobile

After some testing it appears that “close all other tabs” and “close others in tab group” does the same thing on mobile, and it makes it confusing which to select when a user is simply trying to close other tabs in iOS. Given the options they will subconsciously have to consider both. I tried both and they seem to do the same thing every time. Only one should be kept for clarity and conciseness.

Steps to reproduce

  • open two tabs on iOS mobile
  • open command pallete
  • type “close”
  • notice “close all other tabs” and “close others in tab group”
  • tab one either and see the same result

Expected result

Should be only “close others in tab group” without “close all other tabs” (it could be the other way around too)

Actual result

Two different buttons that does the same thing
