Google has built support for OS X notifications into Chrome as experimental feature

According to a TNW report, citing the disclosure by a developer on the Chromium site, tech giant Google apparently has efforts underway to bring native Chrome notifications to Mac users, by integrating with Apple's built-in Notification Center in OS X.

The disclosure that support for OS X's Notification Center is being built by Google into its Chrome browser implies that the browser's own pop-ups on the Mac are seemingly on their way out, because Google will be using the native notifications of OS X.

Though Google has already built initial support for OS X's native notifications into Chrome, the company has not yet fully committed to the feature because it is currently an experimental feature. However, though native support for OS X notifications is currently hidden by Google, a developer on the Chromium site has noted that the feature can still be enabled.

As per the developer, the Google Chrome teams "are actively working on integrating with the OS X native notification center." The developer has also asserted that the feature can already be turned on in the latest Chrome canary build.

For enabling native support for OS X notifications in Chrome, users have to navigate to chrome://flags/#enable-native-notifications in Chrome; and click the 'Enable' option next to 'Enable native notifications.' The feature will get turned on when users re-launch the Chrome browser.
