You can turn them on by changing Settings in your Gmail account using the link in the top right corner of Gmail >>> “Desktop Notifications”. You can customize your settings depending on whether you just want to get notified only about chat messages, or if you use Priority Inbox and only want to get notifications for important messages etc.

This Gmail Desktop popup notifications functionality is currently only available for people using Google Chrome and will be available for other browsers later on hopefully.

    Normally I stay out for everything of this kind of chatt/messenger/e-mail notifiers on my own desk.
