Note: This feature is available in Web Workers.

Secure context

The silent read-only property of the Notification interface specifies whether the notification should be silent, i.e., no sounds or vibrations should be issued, regardless of the device settings. This is specified in the silent option of the Notification() constructor.

Syntax

var silent = Notification.silent;

Value

A Boolean. false is the default; true makes the notification silent.

Examples

The following snippet is intended to fire a silent notification; a simple options object is created, and then the notification is fired using the Notification() constructor.

var options = {
  body: 'Do you like my body?',
  silent: true
}

var n = new Notification('Test notification', options);

console.log(n.silent) // should log true
