Open source Extension which adds Chrome notifications to Hangouts tabs.

It supports multiple hangouts instances at the same time (for example if you're using both Gmail and Inbox).

Notifies you when:
- A contact becomes online
- There's a new chat message

Remember! You need to keep your gmail, inbox or hangouts tab open for the extension to work. I am not affiliated with Google in any way, so it's the best that I can do :)



- Support long notification times on Windows 10 by adding a Close button

Risk impact

Hangouts Notifications requires some risky permissions and may not be safe to use. Exercise caution when installing this extension. Review carefully before installing.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Hangouts Notifications has earned a good reputation and can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Chrome extension may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Chrome extension reputation on Chrome Web Store, the amount of time the Chrome extension has been around, and other signals about the Chrome extension. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Chrome extension, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.
