Desktop notifications

You can enable desktop notifications to alert you about new messages, mentions, and DMs.

In the notifications settings page, select your desktop notifications preference and enable or disable sounds for notifications. After updating your preferences, scroll down to the bottom of the menu and click "Update."

Useful tip!

For first time users who wish to receive desktop notifications, please go to your Typetalk settings menu, choose the “Notifications” tab, click on the "Enable desktop notifications" button and select “allow” when the browser prompts to allow desktop notifications.
