    Notification setting for Whatsapp (importance level) not working. Importance level keeps changing back to urgent for groups and messages (upon receipt of whatsapp message) . Cannot disable the peek.

    This is also happening for me. The settings are constantly overridden by Whatsapp. Disabling notifications in Whatsapp does not work, still notifications are sent with a vibrate and a peek of the message. Changing notifications in android settings are reverted when a new message arrives.

    This is happening on my phone too.

    I have a few busy groups so have the group settings off in the app, but recently I get the notifications even though it's off. Annoying as my watch keeps buzzing every few minutes too.

    I've found the new android notification settings and set group notifications to off, but after a while it went back to Urgent and the whatsapp settings changed to tone, vibrate, light etc too.

    I've tried changing it to low now and will see if that gives me what I want (peace and quiet!)

    Edit - no, it gets set back to Urgent again... Drat.

    This is happening to me too. It does not matter if you disable notifications on APP or Settings->Notifications, always goes turn ON again

    I had the same problem - here - I was told by Celia C that it's a WhatsApp issue and that we should get in touch via the comments on WhatsApp app on play store here - here

    Same happens with me on WhatsApp and Telegram. It is highly irritating, but more than that, a massive privacy concern

    Only solution, I think, now is to mute all conversation or the ones you chat most with. But allow notification while muting.
    And OnePlus @Celia C please fix this, lots of users are facing this issue.

    As engineer confirmed, the issue was caused by Whatsapp itself , it's a third party app issue. Please give your feedback to google play store.

    Thank you and have a nice day.We'd appreciated your support.

    But it's also in Telegram and other messaging apps which have notification categories. Not just in WhatsApp. @Celia C

    For me it's different. I've set whatsapp group's importance level to urgent but still I don't get notification or it's so down and the ones with low importance level are always over it
