Web notifications will no longer be available for Google's users
Feb 7, 2019
Google recently announced the discontinuation of their Notification Widget starting on March 7, 2019. The widget was responsible of showing notifications of Google accounts such as the already-discontinued Google+, Google Photos and Hangouts Chat, and they were shown in the bell icon next to the user's avatar in the toolbar of Google's sites. The decision was taken because the two remaining services will have their own notification options, and not many people were using it at this point, according to reports.
