    I have a galaxy s9 which I have recently upgraded to the one ui beta (android 9 Pie). After doing this update, when ever I get a WhatsApp message a 'floating' moveable icon appears. It's like a Facebook messenger notification when you get the floating icon of the person's profile picture. My question is how do I stop WhatsApp from displaying this icon without removing notifications all together. I've tried removing picture in picture permissions from WhatsApp and it did not work.

    I moved this to the WhatsApp forum for more specific traffic.

    Is there a solution for this? I have the same problem tried every possible combination i could find and can't get rid of the "floating movable icon".
    I have normal pop-up notification on top of the screen, and this circle that is useless. Removing picture in picture premission and removing pop-up notification does not solve the problem.

    I am using Galaxy s9+ with OTA Andoid pie update.
