Samsung J3 - Android 5.1.1 (Lollipop) Regarding WhatsApp notifications....On my previous phone (Samsung Galaxy Trend) When a new WhatsApp message comes through....

  1. The phone vibrates
  2. A number "1" shows up on the WhatsApp icon
  3. The little WhatsApp icon shows up in the top left hand corner of the phone.

This configuration is exactly how I wanted it...

I seem to be having some trouble replicating this exact configuration on my new phone (J3).

Can anyone assist?


  • Nope - I don't mind the message count. Basically, I don't want to see a preview of the message on the screen – GuitarMan May 10 '17 at 9:53
  • What settings do you have in WhatsApp> Settings > Notifications? – esQmo_ May 10 '17 at 11:22
