Google Wave finally gets email notifications

Google Wave developers have finally enabled the option to get email notifications on the much talked about collaboration platform.

You can set the schedule to get the alerts from Google Wave in your Gmail box.

Google Wave finally gets email notifications

Google spoke about this new feature:

When you’re added to a new wave, or a wave that you are on changes, we’ll send you an email with a short summary of the text and links to go straight to your updated waves. Rest assured, we know waves can change a lot, so we will only send you one notification about a changed wave until you have logged in to look at it (i.e.: if a wave changes 10 times after we send the first notification, we won’t send 10 more emails). Waves you have open also won’t trigger updates.

There are however a couple of bugs:

Sometimes the email snippet does not show all participants on the wave
Under certain conditions you may get an update about a wave even if you were the last person to change it
To change the notifications setting you have to go back to the menu where you turned it on. (The link at the bottom of the notification emails is not working yet.)
