Windows Notifications for Chrome

Chrome is now using Windows notifications for all extensions and websites.

Mac users already saw this change last year and now it’s simply Windows turn as shown above.

Before / After (Mac)

This means notifications options will be found in both Windows/Mac settings and my extension’s settings.

Make sure they are enabled: Start menu > Settings > System > Notifications and action settings > Get notifications from apps and other senders

Getting double sounds? You might be getting Windows notification sounds and my extension’s custom sounds at the same time.  Go to Start menu > Settings > System > Notifications and action settings > scroll down and click Google Chrome > Disable the option Play a sound when a notification arrives

For troubleshooting refer to notifications not working.
