Chrome Picks Up Native Windows 10 Notifications

At long last. Google has finally added support for native Windows 10 notifications to Chrome, with the development team rolling out this feature out to version 68 of the web browser.

Which is, pretty much the most popular software of its kind around.

Commanding a monstrous share of the browser market.

Anyway, this good news was shared by Google employee Peter Beverloo on Twitter, who also took the opportunity to thank the Edge and Action Center team at Microsoft, highlighting their efforts to bring this feature to Chrome.

As of right now, the feature has been enabled for about half of users running this latest version of the browser, but all users should see it soon.

If it is yet to be enabled on your end, and you would rather not wait, then there is an easy way to turn them on manually. Simply type chrome://flag in the address bar of the browser and turn on native notifications from the panel.

Easy is as easy does.

This native integration of notifications comes with its set of advantages, namely respect for the Quiet Hours feature on Windows 10, as well as other system settings related to the Action Center in the operating system.

With this update, Chrome has become one of the first major browsers, this side of Microsoft Edge, to add native support for Windows 10 notifications

Now, if we can only get native support for the Timeline feature.

A man can dream.
