In addition to a redesign of the website, Google Chat will be adding additional update options in the coming weeks. “Based on your level of interaction or participation in particular conversations,” these new choices are available.

Users will open a new Notifications page from the three-dot overflow menu of each room:

  • Often notify: Any message will be notified to you, and new messages will be badged.
  • You'll get updates and badges with direct mentions, @all mentions, and threads you've followed. In threaded rooms, there is also the possibility to be alerted when new threads are created.
  • Notifications turned off: You won't get any notifications, so if you're named explicitly, you'll see a badge.

We hope that by allowing you to customize your messages as desired, you will be able to remain on top of important conversations without being distracted by them.

More granular notification settings are being added to Google Chat


These new Google Chat notification settings are open to all Workspace customers starting today and will be completely accessible in the coming days.
