#86 Hangouts - How to turn off Chat Notification

Hi ya!

Have you joined a group conversation on Hangouts?
Receiving a ton of messages that you just don’t want to read right now?

If so, then what you can do is turn off chat notifications on Hangouts!

Doesn’t matter if you’re using the Hangouts App, Extension, or from Gmail.
All apply the same way.

How to turn off Chat Notification in Hangouts
  • Launch Hangouts.
  • Click on the person (or group conversation) that you want to manage notifications.
  • Click the gear icon at the top right.

  • From the Options menu, make sure that Notifications is not checked.

    To put it simple:
    If Notifications is checked, that means you’ll receive notifications every time a new message appears.
    If Notifications is not checked, that means you’ll get no notifications letting you know there was a new message.

And that is how you turn off chat notifications in Hangouts!
