Apologies if this is the wrong stack site to post this question on. I wasn't sure which was best. I have a Huawei p10 phone (on Android 7.0 Nougat). I have searched and searched on-line but there doesn't appear to be any coherent information on how to solve this problem.
I am in a lot of groups on WhatsApp that have a lot of people in them. For this reason, I would like the red icon that appears on the app as a number of notifications to be switched off, as it isn't really telling me anything (except that there are absolutely loads of messages!). I only want it turned off for this app.
I have tried turning the allow notifications switch under 'Settings > Notifications and Status Bar > Notifications Management > WhatsApp' to off, however it doesn't appear to have done anything! ANy help would be greatly appreciated
