When in a group chat, if many messages are exchanged between other people in the group, when I check my Whatsapp, the messages are grouped according to sender and not chronologically. I know that my phone isn't the problem as I have recently changed my phone, however, I'm still experiencing the same problem.

I have tried uninstalling and re-installing WhatsApp on my phone, and the same problem still occurs.

Recently, I have seen many asking the same question in different places but I couldn't find a solution anywhere. So I decided to contact the WhatsApp team directly addressing the issue few days back. This is the response I received:

Yea, they are working on it and it may be fixed soon.

  • The problem is still present, and reported, 5 years later. A contributing cause seems to be an intermittent internet connection. However, I religiously turn on airplane mode while driving and at night, so this is not an option for me. Jan 14, 2021 at 8:00

In Settings, change your phone to use Automatic Date and Time. I had the same problem, but doing this fixed it.
