Doze has been bringing great benefit for my aging Nexus 5. But sadly, its presence also marks an end for my WhatsApp Web experience; since their "web" app is actually just a mere "interface" and still requires the phone to be actively connected to the Internet.
As we all know, Doze puts one's phone into a stand-by state where every unnecessary connection is halted. This means it will also halt the WhatsApp app in my phone (and thus in my computer's browser).
Now, is there a way to exclude WhatsApp from Doze? I mean, is something like that possible?
p.s., I prefer a non-rooted approach to this problem, but should rooting be my only option, so be it.
