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. Select notification tones to select the tone of your choice for individual or group messages.
    Select 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".

Cheers,
