Earlier this year we had reported that Google is testing
support for native Windows 10 notifications for its Chrome
browser. There was no confirmed ETA given as to when the
company plans to roll out the feature to its Chrome browser.

Today we report that Google has now started to roll out the
feature to its Chrome users with version 68 installed on the
PCs. The news was confirmed by Google employee Peter Beverloo
via his official Twitter account.

The feature is currently available for more than 50% of Chrome
users running Chrome 68 and should be available for all users
soon. If you don’t want to wait then you can manually get the
feature by accessing ‘chrome://flags’ and enable native
notifications.

With the integration of Chrome notifications in Action Center,
Chrome becomes the first browser apart from Microsoft Edge to
get support for native notifications in Windows 10. The Chrome
notifications will not make any changes to the already existing
Windows 10 Quiet Hours and any other system settings in the
Action Center.

Native Notifications support for Google Chrome was expected to
be launched with the arrival of Anniversary update for Windows
10 users but Google took time to roll out the feature to its
Chrome browser on Windows 10 since it was found to be not
suitable for public roll out due to issues found during
internal testing.

The notifications feature is currently rolling out only for
Windows 10 users and we have no confirmation if Google plans to
roll out the feature to Windows 8.1 users also. For Windows 7
users the native notifications feature will not be made
available since Microsoft has already ended support for the
operating system.

If any of our users are using Google Chrome version 68 on their
Windows 10 PCs then make sure to check out the notification
feature if already available. Do let us know the first
impressions in the comments below.
