You have to turn Desktop Notifications on for new emails from your Gmail Settings.

From https://support.google.com/mail/answer/1075549?hl=en :

Turn desktop notifications on or off

  1. Open Gmail.
  2. In the top-right corner, click the gear icon Settings.
  3. Select Settings.
  4. Scroll down to the Desktop Notifications section (stay in the "General" tab).
  5. Choose one of the options:

    • New mail notifications on: If you use inbox categories, you’ll only be notified about messages in Primary.
    • Important mail notifications on: You’ll be notified about every incoming messages marked as important. Learn more about importance ranking.
    • Mail notifications off
  6. Click Save Changes at the bottom of the page.

In Gmail in the desktop setting, version 68.0, there is no item labeled "Desktop Notifications" I even checked the advanced section. I guess things have changed.
