Google adds support for native Windows 10 notifications in Chrome

In early March of this year, we saw signs that Google might be adding support for native Windows 10 notifications to its Chrome browser. At the time, it wasn't clear when the feature would make its way to users, but the development team has now started rolling it out to version 68 of the browser.

The announcement was made by Google employee Peter Beverloo on Twitter who also took the opportunity to thank the Edge and Action Center teams at Microsoft for their contributions.

As of right now, the feature has been enabled for about 50% of users running Chrome 68, but all users should see it soon. If you'd rather not wait, you can also enable it manually by accessing 'chrome://flags' and turning on native notifications.

Being integrated into the Action Center brings other good news as well, as Beverloo confirmed that Chrome notifications will respect Windows 10 Quiet Hours, as well as any other system settings related to the Action Center.

With today's update, Chrome is one of the first major browsers outside of Microsoft's own Edge to add support for native notification in Windows 10. Unofficial support for Windows Timeline was also briefly available, but the extension for that has since been taken down due to trademark issues.
