Notifications not showing up on iPhone 5s
I have tried everything to fix this issue by making APNS setting resetting network settings and even updating and deleting the app but the notification issue seems to be unsolvable. Every time I get a call or message on whatsapp there’s no notification and the call won’t even ring on the phone but as soon as I open the app it starts to sync with the cloud and shows me all the notifications of messages and calls that I missed. This had me keep checking on whatsapp after every 2 min to see if there’s any messages or calls I’ve missed. This is really annoying please fix this issue asap.
Annoying crashes, chat issues and emojis.
On my iPhone 6 with iOS 12.5.2 when i open stickers section, they a some time to load,especially the older ones in fav. In this waiting time, frequently the app crashes.
The second issue am facing is when i clear chat in “Delete messages other than starred ones”, after getting the job done many times am unable to access my starred content even after relaunching the app several times, meanwhile in the list of chats the preview of the starred content does appear as it do with most recent msg in a chat, moreover the stared content can be accessed by media section in chat details. But in inbox, screen appears empty of msgs even the tag of END TO END ENCRYPTION also doesn't appears.
The third thing is latest emojis are not available in the app that other people do use from the app, to be more precise yawn emoji and the smiley face with a tear etc. In chat these like emojis appear as a quest mark inside box.
The forth is a req please to add a setting that may let the user to choose who specifically can see the profile pic. Am talking about to allow user select who can see the profile pic out of contacts and which contacts should not see the profile picture.
I’m facing these issues since long and is quite annoying and got over head that made me to write this review
Whatsap Call Hold Option is Not Coming
Hello this has only started to happen recently and cannot find a fix for it. whenever I am on a whats app call and get a normal call, I press the hold and accept, my whats app call says hold then I watch it say call failed a few seconds later. same if I try to place a call while on the call. I have tried reinstalling whats app, updated phone, reset network settings, this has never been a problem before and could always hold my whatsapp call before. I really am stuck on what I could try without having to reset my whole phone. I have 4g/wifi most of the time with no signal issues, all my call waiting settings are turned on and I have tried turning them all on and off. I have done allot of searching and tried allot of steps to resolve it. this might not be a big problem for most people but I am on call almost 24/7 and it's a massive inconvience not being able to answer while on call. thanks
