Enabling Desktop Notifications for Google Drive Fails
- Launch Brave
- Browse to https://drive.google.com
- Go to Settings → Notifications
- Select the checkbox next to "Get updates about Google Drive items in your browser
- Note error pop-up in the lower left-hand corner of the Brave window: “Couldn’t enable notifications”
NOTE: Even if you manually add https://drive.google.com/* to the allow list for notifications within Brave settings, the same error message applies.
Notifications should work!
Brave Version( check
1.23.73 - Windows and macOS versions both exhibit the same behavior
I searched the community and found there are at least two other threads regarding this same issue - one in 2018 and the other in 2019. Both were closed due to inactivity within 30 days from the last update.
This seems like it should be trivial to resolve, but is still unresolved over 2 years after first raising awareness. Either this just isn’t a high priority, or it’s something that’s more difficult to resolve than it appears to be. In either case, it would be nice to know what the root cause is and if there are any plans to resolve it.
