This tutorial explains how to make company announcements in new tab of Chrome. You can add any sort of information related to your company or work. This information can be read by your team members whenever they open a new tab in Chrome browser. Using this Chrome extension, you can add your co-workers and create your announcements or any other news related to your team members. It helps in keeping each team member up to date.
You can invite your co-workers and assign them roles of either a user or admin.

Thereafter, you can add team members who you want to keep updated with each announcement or news. You can add members either as a user or as an admin. As you can see in the above image, as an admin you have the rights to edit or delete an announcement, remove a team member, and switch a team member from user to admin and vice versa. Whereas the user can just view the announcement and can invite people. Make sure that your co-workers have signed up with their work email. Otherwise, they won’t be able to read any announcements.
