Chrome Extensions – Google Voice Notifier

In this second edition of my Chrome Extensions series, I am featuring Google Voice Notifier. This one is really only useful if you have Google Voice.

The Google Voice Notifier extension is from Google, and at the time of this writing has 11,155 users. I expect this number to rise as more people get Google Voice accounts.

The extension works as one might guess. When I have an SMS message or a voicemail, the icon my extension toolbar shows that I have a message and displays a number indicating how many messages are waiting. I currently have my voicemail and sms messages forwarded to my gmail account, but I think this feature is still useful. Since it is installed in my Chrome browser, any computer I log into with my Google credentials will give me quick access to my Voice account.

If you have Google Voice, I think this extension is worth installing.
