68Even for Windows users Chrome is the go to browser nowadays. Although Microsoft has been catching up with the redesigned Internet Explorer called Edge, which is pretty decent in my opinion. Although Edge still doesn’t come near Chrome’s 3rd party browser extension support which becomes a deal breaker for many people.
Google is pushing out a lot of updates for the Chrome browser recently. Infact in February this year they have started marking all non HTTPS websites as unsecure. But there has been a recent development in the Chrome browser for Windows.
Google has integrated Chrome notifications in the Windows Action Centre. This means Windows 10 users will be able to receive pop-up notifications from Chrome through the Windows Action Centre present at the right bottom corner of the screen. This will strongly integrate the Google browser deeper in the Windows OS ecosystem and will be quite a helpful feature for many users.

This news was confirmed by Peter Beverloo, who is a employee at Google. He stated on Twitter that Google is rolling out native notifications for the Chrome 68 browser through the Windows Action Centre. Although, prior to this Chrome did have a notification system. But it wasn’t as efficient or reliable as a user would like it to be.
This update is only for Windows 10 users who are running the anniversary version of the OS. Peter also stated in a reply that not everyone running Windows 10 has received the update yet, only 50% of the users using the latest version of Chrome 68 have received it.
