Useless Notch? Dynamic Notch!


Hi Notch! makes using your MacBook even more productive. It displays additional buttons and statuses of active applications such as web browsers, Apple Music, Microsoft Teams or Zoom.

:warning: Note: This is still in a test version, which means that there may be errors. Currently available features may be significantly modified or even removed. Bugs should be reported on GitHub.

Available functions

Turnouts

  • Mission Control - quick access to Mission Control from any window.
  • Siri and Screen Saver - call Siri and lock screen directly from the Desktop.
  • Window management - left, right, top, bottom - you choose where you want the active window to go (based on Andreas Hegenberg's preset).
  • Arc Browser - quickly ask ChatGPT or search on website.
  • Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari and other browsers - copy URL from active tab or search on website.

Statuses

  • Battery level - the battery level appears on the left side of the Notch. Is something covered up? Hide it by double-clicking on Notch!
  • Music and multimedia - pause and resume multimedia, and check the title and artist of the song being played when you hover the cursor over it.
  • Conferences - mute or unmute and leave the meeting with one click (currently supported apps: Microsoft Teams (work or school) and Zoom).

NotchAssistant

Save time! In Word, Pages and Mail applications, you can use the help of artificial intelligence. All you have to do is type in a text box what you want to appear, and at the click of a button it will turn it into a masterpiece!

More features coming soon!

You will get a notification about new updates every time you run BetterTouchTool (can be turned off in settings).

the battery on the left overlaps the help on the menubar at times

The update will appear later today.

this is such a simple and amazing plugin. Moving the battery to the left of the notch and hovering over it to get window manaagment. Totally changed the game for me. Thank you for sharing this and amazing work.

Thank you so much! Your opinion means a lot to me. I create this project especially for users like you!

of course, people like you make using BTT so much better.

By the way I did just ran into one issue right now. I was on a zoom call and I kept clicking the mute button and I couldn't get it to work. Same with the ending the call.

They didn't go away either until I closed the entire app either. So the call ended, i'm not logged into zoom, and it was still showing the buttons on my notch even after I minimized zoom.

I can keep you updated to see if this keeps happening or if goes away. Just wanted to let you know about it.

Thank you very much for your kind words and for this report. I use the Microsoft Teams app more often than Zoom and probably the bug with the buttons not working appeared when I added support for the new version of Teams (work or school). I'll try to release an update later today.
As for the continuous display of mute and disconnect buttons while the application is running, this is done on purpose so that you can use these functions even when the conferencing application is minimized. I'll think if it can be solved in some other way.
If you have any ideas for features I could add to Hi Notch! then I'd love to hear them :slight_smile:
