Call messages notifications issue

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

Suggestion for categorising chats:

I have been using whatsapp for a long time and enjoyed the experience. It’s the most common text messaging app and almost everyone I know is registered on it. Recently, I’ve been having a problem that’s made the app dreadful to use. I hate having all my chats in one place since it feels random, disorganised and it’s stressful. I wish there was a feature that would allow us to put chats into different categories e.g. family, friends, school, work, businesses, etc. Nowadays, there are so many people and groups hence so many chats and a system to organise them (maybe through labels or folders) would make texting far less dreadful. I think WhatsApp allows this feature for business accounts but I don’t understand why it hasn’t introduced it yet for individual accounts as I believe this idea will make the app easier and more enjoyable to use.

I love the feature that filters all unread chats as it helps me see who I have to reply to, which is a step in the right direction. Thank you
