Email Audio Alerts

If you want to step away from your computer but want to still hear if an email
comes through, you can take these steps:

1. Go to your Gmail Settings:

2. Scroll down and enable notifications:
(there may also be a blue link to click above "New mail notifications on"

3. Install a Chrome Extension
Gmail on a computer does not play audio on incoming email messages
You need a Chrome Extension. I like this one:
Gmail Audio Alerts 
Then, in your Chrome menu bar, click the extension to set up your sound.
Make sure your volume is on.

There are other Chrome Extensions that do the trick, but this one is simple, and of course has the AOL sound which we all love. Hope this helps!
