I am using a Nexus 5 running the latest version of Kitkat.

Whenever I receive a new whatsapp message the status bar slightly floats up and and shows the whatsapp icon saying the message receieved from (sender's name). However after a few seconds it returns to the normal status bar with just the icon remaining, it does not show me a message preview of the content.

After I pull-down to the notification center I can see the message preview just fine, I am having an issue with the toast notification of the status bar.

Is there a way to fix this?

Thanks in advance.

    Are you talking about the same thing that happens for any notification (SMS, email, etc) the statusbar changes to a one-line preview of the notification for a couple of seconds and then changes back to normal? – GAThrawn Feb 25 '14 at 14:20
