Chromes 68 takes notifications native in Windows 10

Google this week started rolling out a change to Chrome 68 on Windows 10 that uses the operating system’s native notification center to post messages from the browser.

According to Peter Beverloo, a staff software engineer who leads the team responsible for, among other things, Chrome’s notifications, half of version 68’s users have had the native support switched on in their browsers. The remainder will have it enabled, Beverloo said, “in a week or so.”

Chrome 68 launched July 24. The browser must be running on Windows 10 1607 – the mid-2016 feature upgrade also named “Anniversary Update” – or later.

With native notifications enabled, messages that had previously been displayed by Chrome – such as those sent by a news website that an important story has just been published – should instead appear in Windows 10 action center, manually accessed by clicking the speech bubble-style icon on the task bar.
