    I am a one plus 6 user and suddenly my whatsapp has stopped notifying me for new notifications(no sound, no vibration), when i unlock my phone I can only see the notification in the notification drawer but it does not notify me with any sound, vibration or even notification light.
    I have tried everything like WhatsApp settings, reset notification settings, restart the phone, still no use, please help

    Same thing happens to me in my OnePlus 3T. Maybe it's an issue with a beta version? (I'm beta tester)

    the latest Beta of WhatsApp fixes the issue:
    „WhatsApp hatte in der Beta zuletzt einen Bug, der sich durch mehrere Versionen zog: So gab es bei eingehenden Nachrichten keinen Notification-Ton mehr. Mich selbst störte das nicht so, da mein Smartphone grundsätzlich stumm geschaltet läuft. Wer sich darauf verließ, ärgerte sich aber sicherlich. Mit der Android-Beta gehört der Fehler nun wieder der Vergangenheit an.“

    WhatsApp recently had a bug in the beta that was present in several versions: There was no notification tone for incoming messages. This did not bother me that much, since my smartphone is always on mute. However, those who relied on it were certainly annoyed. With the Android beta, the bug is now a thing of the past again.
