Hate the Facebook app? You can now get push notifications thru Chrome on Android
If you’re someone who loves Facebook but hates the Android app, using a browser just got better – at least, if you’re using Chrome. Chrome users on Android can now opt-in to push notifications from Facebook, reports TechCrunch. So now you can see when someone likes your cat video without having to run the app.
Google expects browser-based push notifications to be most popular in developing markets, as Chrome uses less data than the Facebook app.
Facebook is also working on its own Google Now competitor, built into the Messenger app.
