Google Now notifications now in Chrome Beta for Desktop

Google has announced yesterday that Google Now notifications are now integrated into the Chrome beta browser on Mac, Windows, and of course in Chrome OS. This means you will now be able to see your Google Now cards on your Desktop.

Tied to your Google account, the cards offer many of the same features like traffic, stock updates, and sports scores you see on your Android device.

To enable these notifications, simply sign in to Chrome with the same Google Account you’re using for Google Now on Android or iOS. The cards will be delivered through the notification center (little bell icon on the task-bar).

For the time being, this new feature is only available on Chrome beta, the most stable of Chrome’s preview channels, and in English. Google promises it will support other languages soon.
