Introduced recently for Google’s Chrome desktop browser, rich notifications are cards that appear on your desktop, informing you of notifications on your account, such as new emails and Google+ activity. They are great, but with a new app called Krome, you can now also receive your Android device’s notifications right on your desktop. Once configuration is complete, you can even begin replying to text messages you receive right from your browser.
To use Krome, your computer will need to be running Chrome v27 or higher, with rich notifications enabled. For now, they are only supported on Windows computers and according to Google, Mac OS will be supported sometime soon. So until then, sorry Apple users.
The app costs just $0.99 through Google Play, so go give it a whirl if you’re interested.
