Google finally removed the Notification bell icon from its web applications

The bell icon was aimed at quickly delivering notifications for the social network

Last month Google has declared, it is going to deprecate the notification icon on the top right corner of the screen starting from 7th March 2019. And few of you must have got the notification while using any of the Google Services.

After March 7, 2019, notifications for Google web products will no longer be accessible from the navigation bar. If you’d like to receive similar notifications in the future, you can update the notification settings for your individual Google products.

Introduced alongside Google+ back in 2011, the bell icon was aimed at quickly delivering notifications for the social network on whatever Google service you were using. Over time it grew to include Google Photos and Hangouts Chat, with the former service often serving up actions and alerts that appear in the Assistant tab.

Also, the Google+ for consumers is set to be deprecated in April. When the Notifications Widget first launched with the social network, it seemed that alerts for other services could one day appear in the tray. However, Google never added other services eventually.

Users that want to continue receiving notifications for Google+ enterprise, Photos, and Hangouts Chat are advised to head to the respective apps and enable alerts in settings.
