Sound notifications

When you receive a chat, you are notified audibly with a sound notification. Sound notifications are enabled by default in Gmail and orkut. Of course, you can always disable them at any time. Here's how:

In Gmail:

  1. Click the gear icon link at the top of any Gmail page, and open the Chat tab.
  2. In the Sounds section, select Sounds off.
  3. Click Save Changes.
You must have Flash enabled on your computer to use sound notifications in Gmail.

In Orkut:

  1. At the bottom of your chat list, select Actions.
  2. Under Enable sound click No.

Note: Disabling sound notifications in Gmail will not disable them in orkut automatically.
