    Hey, so I'm having an issue where WhatsApp keeps giving me these weird pop up notifications. It's different to the ones that appear at the top of the screen. It just appears in the middle of my screen and shows a small part of a message or a previous of a picture. It doesn't seem to happen every time I get a message. I had tried everything I can think of in the app settings, turning pop ups on and off, I have even gone into phone settings and 'blocked all notifications' from WhatsApp however this doesn't work. I even uninstalled and reinstalled just incase. It's a really irritating feature, no one I know seems to have ever had it, so it's possibly to do with the phone rather than WhatsApp but doesn't happen with texts etc! I have a Moto G Play running android 6.0.1. Ive googled it a few times and the answer is always the stuff I've already tried. Please help, it's driving me mad.

    From the main WhatsApp window, tap the menu icon at top-right, tap Settings -> Tap Notifications. Ensure that Popup notification is set to No popup.

    If that is already the case, then I would have to wonder if the notifications are actually being popped by another app. There are lots of apps out there that try to be "helpful", often in ways that are not fully explained.

    Yeah I've tried that! Thanks though. I'll look through my apps and see if anything could be interfering. I don't really have that much installed though so I'm not sure what's caused it.
