Don't get Whatsapp notifications on Android Nougat on Galaxy S7

A

AC Question

I had used the battery saver few times and switched off the same as well. But post that, I do not get any notifications from Whatsapp. Only when I open the app, new messages can be seen. But this is not the case with other apps. Also, the settings/ permissions are the same for Whatsapp as for the other apps.

I had this too. Firstly make sure WhatsApp is not included in battery optimisation. Go to settings/device maintenance/ battery then scroll down to unmonitored apps and make sure WhatsApp is included as an unmonitored app. Scroll down to Add Apps to add it if not. I also went to WhatsApp settings and disabled notifications and then re-enabled them. I get notifications now.

I am getting the same, and checked the settings you mention. I get a vibrate and a sound, but the screen does not light up. If I press the home button, I can see a notification on my lock screen, and also, if my phone is unlocked, the notification appears in the heading ... but, nothing if screen is off
