Can Instant Message within Google trigger a pop up like gmai

Postby idkidd » Thu Nov 08, 2007 3:25 am

Hi, new to Growl here and am figuring things out.

Is it possible to set Growl to pop up when a new Instant Message within GMail arrives? I have the standard google chat tone that sounds when a new message arrives but I usually have my sound off at work.

Thanks in advance for any info.

I am not using any client I guess: I'm just opening and receiving chat messages within gmail.

Ya, we can't do anything unless google codes something up for support.

darn. Thanks for the info though.

Has that been a feature requested much before? I feel like my email life has been sped up after having Growl for just a couple days :)

It'd be nice if the chat feature within gmail could act the same way.

why not use ichat or adium for your google chat? both can use growl.

I guess I can look into those. I hardly ever use chat but what I like about that chat feature within gmail is that it's not something I ever really have to think about: it's just there within the browser. A nice extra feature.

Google would need to add this themselves to call out to Growl. There's nothing for us to hook into their chat interface as far as I know, and even then I think it would problematic.
