Google and Microsoft don’t usually go along pretty well but it looks like the company does have some interest in Windows 10. With the latest update for Google Chrome in the Canary Ring, Google has rolled out support for Windows 10’s Native Notifications.
The new feature will send push notifications to the Windows 10’s Action Center like when you get notifications from UWP Apps. This new feature will allow users to receive notifications like for new Emails directly into Action Center. The feature is currently being tested and is not ready for the public release. However, you can expect it to roll out once Google is done testing it completely. Google recently explained the feature on their Chromium blog as well.
This allows the user to manually opt into using Windows native notifications instead of Chrome’s version of the notifications. Note: This flag is ignored on versions of Windows old enough not to support native notifications.

We hope that Google finishes the testing soon so that the rollout for the same can begin. Meanwhile, you can head to the comments section below to share your thoughts on the new feature.
