May 11, 2016, 12:23 pm

Now get your event notifications while you are sending an email to your client without interrupting your current work. Google has announced Gentle Notifications feature that lets you get reminders while working in other tabs uninterrupted at the same time without losing track of your next meeting.

The new feature will be available in browsers like Google Chrome that support Web Notifications. The feature works seamlessly in all Google platforms and will allow you to use native browser notifications instead of interruptive alerts.

This new feature is opt-in and automatically activated for existing lab users. In order to opt-in, simply enable browser notifications from the Settings menu in Google Calendar.
