    I have changed my WhatsApp group notification settings from URGENT to LOW. But as soon as I get a new message , the settings are back to previous setting. It starts ringing default message tone and vibration.
    please advise what is the bug and how to troubleshoot ?

    Yes, I agree with you. This is completely strange and I am not at all liking this update.
    Especially notifications have become such a painful thing to manage with WhatsApp. Hoping the 8.0.1 or 8.1 would get fixes to such bugs.

    BTW, I even faced slight heating issue after upgrading to 8.0.

    Overall, this 8.0 doesn't make me happy in any situation.

    Yup - maybe the WhatsApp isn't ready for the 8.0 which it should have been ideally. But something isn't really working properly so hence this issue.
    Any suggestions to point this issue to OP support on this forum?

    I posted a similar thread asking if any had this issue.
    yes I do have this problem. It goes back to "Urgent" for individual and also group messages. This is something the Oreo & Oxygen OS has to take care of and not WhatsApp, that's because I stopped WhatsApp from changing or modifying system settings, even then this bug exists. That's because the whole concept of notification dots came into picture the OS is taking in "Urgent" as the only default option.

    That's my opinion though. Whatever, hope they rectify this soon.

    I have the same issue and it's so annoying I had to switch off notifications completely for WhatsApp.

    Same here, on 3T. It reverts to urgent as soon as the next message comes in. Annoying!

    Happening to me too. I've had an email chat with a WhatsApp support engineer, who has advised report it to Google - which I have just done. Hopefully they get it sorted soon as it's quite annoying.

    You known what? Since this bug raised, I've disabled WhatsApp notifications at all, and noticed my life is better.

    Hi all,

    This is from OnePlus Bug Hunters. We had analysed this issue. Upon further assessment, it has been determined that this is an application issue. Please reach out to the developer regarding this.

    Thank you and have a nice day.

    Hi all,

    It has been almost 3 months since the intial post and it seems like the bug does exist.
    Application/Google/Oxygen or whatsoever, it feels a bit irritating that it couldnt be solved yet.

    Any other solution apart from disabling notifications for Whatsapp completely???

    The problem is that it keeps resetting to urgent. This is really a WhatsApp issue

    We should all give one star rating to the app and put a message with the issue on the play store and they will be forced to fix this situation!

    Actually Pankajramnani's advice is working good for me. I didn't test is so much, but so far so good... thank you!

    Same Issue for me. After 3 months from your post, still not resolved.
    I used the option of gaming mode to avoid the annoying notifications appearing while using other apps.
