After having nearly forgotten about Google Wave, today, while talking to a friend we decided to give it a go for some brainstorming/collaboaration. To my surprise when I logged in to Wave, I was greeted with this popup

Google Wave Email NotificationMy first reaction was “Cool, they finally giving us the option to have email notifications.”, but then I remembered how Buzz ‘spammed’ my inbox with all those random messages that I didn’t care about, so in the end I just clicked on “No, thanks.”

If you, like me clicked “No, thanks” but then changed your mind. The elusive “notification setting” is hidden under a menu which can be triggered when you hover over “Inbox” and click on the arrow icon that appears.

Google Wave Notifications

Interesting thing is I do remember that Google making a firm stand on keeping Google Wave and Gmail distinctively separate, guess that is no longer the case!

ps. Compared to when I last used Wave, it seems to have improved a fair bit. The inline commenting is win!

    Aaaaah! That’s where the stupid notifications setting is! I was wondering why it didn’t appear in my Settings waves…

    the real win is the extensions. now wave has become a platform for lots of little, js apps extensions. if only wave is more popular and stable then i’d use it.
