Waiting for the native Google Chrome notifications in Windows 10? The feature is live now. The blog post will teach you how to manage the feature.

A week ago, a Chrome developer Petr Beverloc announced on the Twitter that they are adding support for the native notification in Chrome 68 using the Windows 10 Action Center
