Is there a way to make chat messages with an audio alert?

We are running Odoo v8 and the chat system works fine, but there is no audio notification, which makes it easy to miss messages. Is there a way to provide this somehow?

I think the easiest way would be just add Audio Web API and something like this into the im_chat.js

var beep = function(duration, type, finishedCallback) {

if (!(window.audioContext || window.webkitAudioContext)) {

throw Error("Your browser does not support Audio Context.");


duration = +duration;

// Only 0-4 are valid types.

type = (type % 5) || 0;

if (typeof finishedCallback != "function") {

finishedCallback = function() {};


var ctx = new (window.audioContext || window.webkitAudioContext);

var osc = ctx.createOscillator();

osc.type = type;



setTimeout(function() {



}, duration);
