Seems like there is a lot going on about notifications on Chrome and Chrome OS. What’s special? Oh wait! I know why!. Google Now is getting ready for Chrome and Chrome OS. Latest update to the Google Voice Chrome extension has added support for Desktop notifications. This feature however is experimental according to the team, and can be disabled from the options menu for the extension.
We already know that Google Now is coming to Chrome and Chrome OS. Code changes started showing up couple of months ago and then we saw the notifications center of Chrome OS and Chrome getting a redesign. Today there is one more thing to add to that list.
Google Now is now part of chrome://flags page which lists all the experimental features of Chrome and Chrome OS for testing. It has been added as a built in extension.
This is available in the latest Chromium builds.
We can enable the flag from chrome://flags but it is not functional yet because the Google Now URL is still a secret, says François Beaufort.
Google’s continuing to transform its search product into a knowledge engine, as evidenced by the new Google Search app on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and its Google Now features. Today some of that functionality is starting to bleed over into the company’s mobile search offering, with the launch of rich “interactive answers” to mobile search queries.
