Take control of Chat notifications on the web and mobile by managing the settings.

The new Chat for G Suite users provides great ways for individuals and teams to keep in touch and share messages and files.

Sometimes though the notifications can be intrusive, for example if you are in a meeting.

You can mute notifications for everything or for a specific person or room.

From in the Chat App on the Web:

  • For all messages: click Settings then Notification settings
  • For conversations: On the right of a direct message, click Notifications off notifications_off.
  • For rooms: On the left, hover over the room and click More then Notifications off notifications_off.

If you turn off notifications for a direct message or a room, you’ll still be notified for @mentions.
