    I found this thread probably like most of you- trying to fix this extremely annoying pop up thing! Absolutely horrible idea. However, a couple of things..

    There has always been a similar feature- the message text used to pop up, but it stayed enclosed in the notification bar. Now that I liked, because if I caught the message as it came in I could read it without even opening the app. Thus far I have found no way to get that back. I have, however, been able to keep the notification of whatsapp while disabling the annoying pop up. Oddly enough, you do it by turning it ON. Set it to show pop ups only if screen is off. Now, if your screen is on, you will only receive a icon in the notification bar along with your normal notification sound. Not sure about the other messaging apps, but it worked for whatsapp.

    Hope this helps!
    Came here to +1 this. This is the solution, which is completely backwards to what you'd expect! But yes, I no longer get the annoying preview on top when playing games/watching videos by turning the option ON.

    The icon still shows up on the top for new notifications, so this is perfect.

    Thank you!

    Sorry to resurrect this old thread, but I just got a new phone and this was driving me crazy, but I found an answer so if this helps anyone that lands here from googling like I did I feel like it will be worth it.

    The answer is in "Allow peeking" which is buried under settings-> Sound & notification -> App notifications -> <app name: LINE> -> Allow Peeking and turn it OFF!
    Not listed in Note 5. All that is under "L" is Lightflow and Lookout.

    Hey everyone,

    Not sure if you guys have figured out a way to stop the pop-up notifications but I came across an app that helps sort this issue out (at least it did for me )
    "Step 1: Install HeadsOff
    Go ahead and install HeadsOff, Jawomo's app, from the Google Play Store for free. Obviously, you'll need to be running Android 5.0 or higher for this.

    Step 2: Enable the Service
    To get this application working, open it up and select "App is disabled," then enable Notification access. Once access is granted, heads-up notifications will be suppressed.

    Step 3: Apply It on a Per-App Basis (Optional)
    With the Pro version ($1.99), you can enable HeadsOff on a per-app basis so you don't miss out on the alerts you really want. There's also an option to select how notifications appear on your lock screen, but this can also be done natively through the stock Settings app."

    Hope it helps!

    You need to go into the actual Android settings, and then Application Manager:

    Android Settings > Application Manager > WhatsApp

    Then untick "Show Notifications".

    You can then choose to enable pop-up alerts for messages or groups. (In my case I only wanted an alert if a single person sent something to me - not inane group chatter!)

    Me too please help me to disable this notifications from my mobile screen.
    i cant show my note 4 to any other due to privacy matter..
    Hello bro, i am also a note 4 user, i had this problem also and i find the solution to this.
    1. Go to phone serttings
    2. then go to sound and notification
    3. You will find 'app notification' there.
    4. Once in the app notification you will see your apps. Go to whatsapp
    5. Turn off 'previews in pop up' or any other notification you desired.

    Hope this helps. Peace✌

    Here's how to solve it! Android overrides in-app settings. This is why you can't change this feature by going directly into the program and editing "notifications". You have to go into your phone's "Settings". Then click on "Apps" to access your app data/information. Find Whatsapp or any other app/program that's creating any popups appearing over other apps. Deactivate "Allow Peeking". This is what will show notifications above other programs/apps and is the ONLY way to remove them!

    Go to General SETTINGS (Android), then NOTIFICATIONS, then click on ADVANCED and find the Whatsapp APP. Look into the options and TURN OFF the PREVIEWS IN POP-UPS. That should work fine.

    Don't expect anything from the Whatsapp Settings menu in the Notifications option. You may select "No popup" but it doesn't work.

    I don't want to turn off notifications completely. I just don't want the pop-up that appears at the top of my screen. I still want the phone to go off when I get a text.

    Exactly my problem. I don't want a pop up banner EVER from any app. I would like a sound notification from a few apps. It doesn't appear you can separate these two types anymore. A giant step backward for Android!

    This is a very different problem from the one covered in this thread.
    Your best bet is to start a new thread so that your question is not lost in the crowd.

    You need to remove the apps permission to draw on top of other apps.

    ***Note: For Samsung devices running Android 6, this setting has been moved to Settings > Applications > Application Manager > More > Draw over other apps

    ****On newer Samsung devices, such as the Galaxy S7, the "Draw over other apps" has been renamed to "Apps that can appear on top".

    I just figured out how to disable the text notification from the top of my screen on my lgx power with Sprint.

    Allow peeking - OFF

    I no longer receive the pop up message on the top of phone when I get a text just the notification sound. It worked for me I hope it works for you.

    Go to: settings>notifications, select the app, then move the "Show Silently" switch from grey (default) to blue. That fixed the problem on my phone, a Note 8 running Android 7.1.1

    I was battling with this issue on my Google Pixel. Followed a number of the instructions on this forum but nothing seemed to get rid of that "Pop up" notification. Eventually my fix was the contact I was talking to had "custom notification" turned on. Meaning that no matter what settings i would set the whats app settings to it would only listen to the "custom notification" settings that where set for that contact.

    After turning off the custom notification for that contact everything seemed to work as it should. I don't ever remember setting custom notifications for this contact at any point but i'm glad I was able to fix this. For any one else running into this issue below is a link to WhatsApp FAQ where they detail how to access the custom notifications setting.
