WhatsApp for Android finally allows you to classify notifications according to their priority. Notification prioritization is a function that has been on the way since August 2017, when Android 8.0 first appeared. This new feature is thanks to the newest version of Android giving users the ability to add notification channels.
Sound confusing? The function allows you to assign different types of notifications. For example, you can make a notification of a message from your mother urgent. This means every time your mother writes to you, your mobile will emit a sound vibrate. Meanwhile, a medium priority notification will not emit any sound any at all.
This way, it will be easy for you to know which WhatsApp notifications are important and which ones are not.
There are 10 different channels, you can use to customize your notifications; group notifications, message notifications, chat history backup, critical app alerts, failure notifications, media playback, uncategorized, other notifications, sending media, and silent notifications.
To use this feature you must have the latest version of WhatsApp and the latest version of Android. Once you’re update, the next time you receive a WhatsApp notification on your device, press and hold it and then select All categories. Then, decide what to do with this notification.
