We have tested this feature with Chrome Beta version 97. But, since it is an experimental feature, Google may remove it from the browser in future development. So, if you cannot find this feature in your Chrome beta version, you may check it in the stable build.

Update: Google Photos memories card is available with Chrome stable version 102. Though still it is an experimental feature, it works flawlessly.
