How do I change my notification settings?

You can customize the notifications that alert you to new WhatsApp messages on Windows Phone.

To change your notification settings:

  1. Open WhatsApp.
  2. Tap the three dots at the bottom of the screen > settings.
  3. You can choose:
    - notification tones to select the tone of your choice for individual or group messages.
    - chat settings > Show Message in Notification to choose to show or not to show the message in the notification bar.

Please Note:

  • The notification tone settings are available only for Windows Phone 8 Update 3 (GDR 3).
  • The notification tone settings you choose will only work when the app is running in the background.
  • There is currently no way to disable the notification bar.
  • To fully activate your notification tone settings, please make sure your phone's notifications are not set to silent.
