Never miss a chat message!

Image from store Chat Notifications for Gmail™
Description from store Shows desktop notifications when you receive a chat in gmail. Never miss a chat message again! =========== UPDATE =========== Version 1.0.7 - Working again. Version 1.0.6 - Fixed a bug where the first message wouldn't display correctly. Version 1.0.5 - Changed name in compliance with Google branding guidelines. Version 1.0.4 - Added toolbar icon. When left-clicked, disables notifications. ============================== NOTE: You *must* have a gmail tab open in order to receive chat notifications. KNOWN ISSUES: Some of the google labs features might break this extension. The "SMS in Chat" feature is known to cause problems. I will try to fix this in the future. FUTURE: I plan on adding notification timeout options, and ambiguous notifications in the event you don't want the full chat message displayed. If you have any other requests for options, please let me know!

  • (2015-03-11) Gašper Karantan Vozel: Works great. I read that you have to have opened gmail in your tab.. I always have my gmail open in pinned tab so this was no issue for me.
  • (2015-02-19) drgtdc: Get it to work when gmail tab is closed: i.e. 1. Tab closed - user did not sign out. 2. Tab closed - user signed out first. (Probably not possible). 3. Use the "Signed into Chrome" status??? NOT NEEDED IF GMAIL TAB IS OPEN, YOU GET GMAIL'S NOTIFICATION.
  • (2014-10-27) Ka Ge: If you do not have a gmail open tab, you get NO notifications. If you do, then you do not need this!!!
  • (2013-11-19) Pamala Pudentai: does not work...
  • (2013-02-12) Lara Levy: When I right click the icon, the 'options' option is grayed out so I can't customize anything. So as of right now it does the same thing Gmail does and flash an icon on the Gmail tab...
  • (2012-04-28) Ben Trusty: does not appear to work with 20.0.1115.1 dev-m in winxp sp-3. it never notified me of any comments in an ongoing conversation i had open. whether i was on the gmail tab or on another tab. i was hoping this would let me know when i got chats since i have gmail as a pinned icon and do not receive notifications for chat
  • (2012-01-03) Daniel Mestiz: it worked the first time... then it just stopped notifying me.. even when the gmail tab was open. i was on another page and the gmail tabline read so-and-so says... still nothing. can't wait for working version... it was really helpful when it worked!
