// First, let's remove related products from their original position

remove_action( 'woocommerce_after_single_product_summary', 'woocommerce_output_related_products', 20);

// Second, let's add a new tab

add_filter( 'woocommerce_product_tabs', 'woo_new_product_tab' );

function woo_new_product_tab( $tabs ) {
	
$tabs['related_products'] = array(
	'title' 	=> __( 'Try it with', 'woocommerce' ),
	'priority' 	=> 50,
	'callback' 	=> 'woo_new_product_tab_content'
);
	return $tabs;
}

// Third, let's put the related products inside

function woo_new_product_tab_content() {
woocommerce_output_related_products();
}

Where to add this snippet?

You can place PHP snippets at the bottom of your child theme functions.php file (delete "?>" if you have it there). CSS, on the other hand, goes in your child theme style.css file. Make sure you know what you are doing when editing such files - if you need more guidance, please take a look at my free video tutorial "Where to Place WooCommerce Customization?"

Does this snippet (still) work?

Please let me know in the comments if everything worked as expected. I would be happy to revise the snippet if you report otherwise (please provide screenshots). I have tested this code with Storefront theme, the WooCommerce version listed above and a WordPress-friendly hosting on PHP 7.3.

    Thanks for taking the time to post this. I was just wondering if you knew of any way to hide Out-of-Stock items from the Woocommerce Related products slider?

    1. Hey, thanks so much for your comment! Yes, this is possible – but unfortunately this is custom work and I cannot provide a complementary solution here via the blog comments. Thanks a lot for your understanding! ~R
