You know those annoying reminders that pop up on your browser, letting you know that in 10 mins a calendar event is about to start?
You should bid them farewell.
In Google Calendar, go to your calendar settings.
A little way down the page you’ll find Notifications. Tick Use browser notifications instead of interruptive alerts. Also tick Play sound (if you’d like).
Google Chrome will now ask to Show notifications. Click Allow. From now on, you’ll receive a simple and less intrusive notification in the top right corner of your screen.
