Image from store Download Notify
Description from store Download Notify is a download notification that offers a single beep on download completion and after downloading all files, it will play a final sound letting you know that all downloads are done. The extension also displays the count for the downloads in progress. Extremely lightweight, Download Notify is a great add on for anyone who uses Google Chrome. 1.0.12 ------ - Fixed a bug that was causing issues at times with the counter. 1.0.11 ------ - Added a reset counter button in the options in case your counter gets stuck. This is an on-going bug that I'm trying to 100% figure out still. 1.0.10 ------ - Added options to disable the bottom download shelf, as well as to have a pop up notification when the the entire batch of downloads finishes. 1.0.8 ----- - Fixed a bug I found while working with the minimum download size option. - Added a YouTube video showing how the actual extension works. 1.0.7 ----- - Added an options section to the extension so that you can: > enable/disable the batch completed sound > set a minimum download size to check for - Sorry for the long wait! Keep sending in enhancements if you need one :) 1.0.5 ----- - Fixed counting bug when there is a download error.

  • (2021-08-12) Sean Lyons: I've been looking for a way to get audible notifications when a download is complete in Chrome. I came across your Chrome extension "Download Notify" and tried it out. So far, it's pretty good but I often miss or don't hear the subtle sound effect as I am usually multitasking on and off my computer especially when other sound sources are present. I would like to make a few suggestions that I think would make this really solid. 1. Looping a sound effect until a user intervenes or stops it. 2. A different sound effect for a failed download, this message reads "Failed - Network error" in the download tab. 3. Custom sounds that can accommodate long length sound files, like a drone, alarm, or a soundtrack until a user intervenes or stops it. Download notifications on lengthy downloads are especially helpful, especially when you are multitasking. Just as important is a different sound for failed downloads, it's pretty frustrating when a lengthy download fails halfway through and you don't realize it until much much later because you are waiting for the completed download sound effect!
  • (2021-06-13) Gaurav: No longer works as of 2021. Most downloads do not give the download finished sound. Very rarely once in 50 downloads, the sound plays.
  • (2021-03-05) Sagittarius: 都是抄同一隻爛程式,也沒做啥修改
  • (2021-02-14) Amul Star: Very useful extension. Please allow for use of custom sound file on batch completion. The 3 second long wav is very good for intermittent jobs. But on a sequential download of files in batches of 2 it get annoying real fast. Thanks.
  • (2020-03-21) Newtomic: It needs more work, like a possibility to define a custom sound and the counter is just broken on my computers it's showing like 183 in one, 386 in another, etc.
  • (2019-08-16) Nanashino Gonbei: インストール後しばらくはちゃんと機能していたが、 いつからか「破損」して機能しなくなった。 修復するとまた機能するが、すぐに破損する。
  • (2019-02-09) Colin: Simple & great extension to have.
  • (2019-01-08) Sexually Transmitted Disease.: Hello there sir. Amazing extension. I'll give it 4/5 though because you did not make an option were the user could use his own sound not just the default that it is this tool.
  • (2017-03-24) Alessandro P: why a backround prcess always active? there s no need for it
  • (2017-03-04) Ꝁ Ɨ Ƀ Ɍ Ǥ: Нет возможности выбора звукового уведомления!
  • (2017-02-28) Сергей Терехов: наконец убрал эту бесячую полоску загрузки внизу )
  • (2016-04-27) Floyd: My preferred notification extension, plus the sounds are just right. One problem the counter still shows after downloads are complete, its really annoying. I doubt you'll even see this, since the extension hasn't had an update since 2014. Regardless awesome extension.
  • (2014-08-15) Chris Attard: Add an option to change to my own sounds
  • (2014-07-18) Daniel Mendes: ~ It's Simple, Useful and Unique!. Thank you! =D
  • (2014-07-01) Michael Schreiber: Works great when I want to be notified when my downloads are complete. Thanks!
