Google Introduced Desktop Notifications for Gmail
If you are using Google Chrome and Gmail in it then you might be interested in the new desktop notification features that Google has introduced. Many a times it may happen that you are working on other browser window and miss out on some important chat or email that you received in your Gmail. Now you will not miss any conversation as Google has introduced HTML5 based desktop notifications that shows a pop-up whenever a chat message or new email arrives.
Google’s Andrew Wilson said –
Many of us are guilty of constantly switching back to Gmail to check for new messages. And if you’re like me, you’ve probably missed an important chat message because you weren’t looking at your Gmail window when it came in,
If you use Google Chrome, these days can be over since we just launched HTML5 desktop notifications which display pop-ups whenever a chat message or new email arrive
You might have noticed “update desktop notification” showing by default on top of your inbox and if you have missed, then to activate this feature, go to Gmail settings and activate desktop notifications. You can also customize it so you only receive Gmail or Gchat notifications, or only priority inbox notifications.
