How to send quick Google Chat (Gmail) alerts in Laravel

Skip the notifications and send alerts


1 min read

After Freek released a little package to send quick alerts to Slack, I knew instantly I wanted that for our main app but for Google Chat.

I released GoogleChatAlert that, like the main package, allows for multiple rooms to send an alert. It also cuts down on the complexity of setting up Laravel notifications.

GoogleChatAlert::message("Invoice {$invoice->number} is now 80 days past due");

For critical alerts this package allows you to @all members of the room:

GoogleChatAlert::message("New support ticket. <users/all>");

Big thanks to Spatie team!
