We often juggle multiple tabs or windows during our browsing sessions, and its quite easy to overlook a chat window or notification that is popping up outside of the window currently being used. Today Google has released a new beta update of Chrome browser for Windows and Chrome OS, this update brings a richer notifications experience outside the browser. Google says these notifications have been designed to be useful, engaging and beautiful. They can display formatted images and texts, and are also capable of supporting direct actions such as replying to an email from within the notification itself.
There’s also a notification center that will house all missed notifications, catching up on them require you to simply open up this center. There’s also the ability to disable notifications from any particular source, such as Gmail or Google Calendar whenever the user desires. Not only does it look good, it is definitely a useful feature. The latest Chrome beta for Windows and Chrome OS is now available for download. Google says that support for Mac as well as Linux is on the way.
