If you’re using Gmail or GTalk, even Google Apps and Chrome as your browser then you don’t need to check your email again to make sure if you have new email. Google Chrome now equip with notification feature for Gmail or GTalk. A new popup notification will show on your Chrome to tell you if you have new email or new chat. This save your time because you don’t need to check your Gmail or Google Apps to see if there is new email.
To active this feature go to “Setting” on your Gmail or Google Apps from Google Chrome browser. Please note that this setting will not work on another browser.
On the Settings area scroll down to the “Desktop Notifications” section. If you just want to get notified about chat messages, or if you use Priority Inbox and only want to get notifications for important messages, you can customize your settings from there too.
That’s all. You will get notification when new email or chat come to your inbox.
For now this feature only available on Google Chrome. Google is still working to make notifications part of the standard Web platform.
