WhatsApp now lets you organize your notifications by importance, and block the ones you don't want to see.
It lets you decide which types of alert you receive from the app are urgent – such as those for group chat messages – and which types you don’t actually want or need to see – such as those that pop up when you’re trying to send a large media file.
WhatsApp offers 10 Notification Channel categories, which you can control individually.
Each category contains several different options.
You can turn notifications for each category on or off, or mark them as Urgent (make sound and pop up on screen), High priority (make sound), Medium priority (no sound) or Low priority (no sound or visual interruption).
You can also decide what sound a notification makes, and decide whether or not to allow the notification content to appear on your lock screen.
The feature is currently available only in the beta version of WhatsApp.
