Get a desktop notification whenever a new message arrives
I keep reloading the site to see if I have any new messages. It would be nice if I could plug my email notification app (i use Gmail Notifr) into your site and get an anonymized new email notification whenever a new message arrives.
It is a bit difficult to control privacy when it comes to such notifications.
Make it like facebooks notifications, an easy option to turn them on or of, perhebs even simpler (not coding wise) make chats have a popup text bubble like facebook has, minimize, and a cross to remove them. ( talking facebook not messenger.)
