Just a few days after Google Now notifications made their way to the canary channel for Chrome on the desktop, they are now available for the dev channel of Chrome OS, too. This means that devices like the new Toshiba Chromebook or – my personal favorite – the Chromebook Pixel will now have access to the same convenient information alerts I’ve been enjoying on my Android devices for a while now.
To enable the feature, just navigate to chrome://flags/ in the omnibar, find the “Enable Google Now” flag, change the setting from Default to Enabled, and click Relaunch Now at the bottom of the page. That’s it!
Just like Chrome on the desktop, not all of your mobile cards will appear right away, but Google is constantly working on bringing more notifications to the desktop. So, while Chrome and Android remain two distinct entities at Google, the divide has just gotten a little shorter.[OMG! Chrome!]
