THE popup notification on WhatsApp is different from the notifications that appear on the top bar of the cell phone, as they give more space for messages sent by the app. With it activated, a board will appear on your smartphone screen and from there you can easily respond to an individual or group conversation, using text, emojis or voice messages.
The popup is only available on WhatsApp for those who have one phone with Android 9 or earlier versions🇧🇷 Those who have access to the resource can choose between three ways of viewing:
- With the screen on: the popup stands out above other apps;
- screen off: whenever the message arrives, the screen lights up to show the pop-up;
- Always show notifications: shows popup notifications in any situation.
How to enable popup in WhatsApp
If your mobile phone allows you to use the pop-up for notification, follow the steps below to activate the feature in individual or group conversations:
- Go to “Settings”
Open WhatsApp, click on the three dots at the top of the screen and select “settings🇧🇷
- Open the “Notifications” section
Scroll down and click on “Notifications🇧🇷
- Enable popup notification
Tap “pop-up notifications” and select one of the options presented in the drop-down menu.
Whenever someone sends you a message, you can see it without having to open WhatsApp.
If you don’t like the pop-up experience, go to “Notifications” again and select “No Pop-up” to disable the feature.
What are the other types of WhatsApp notifications on mobile?
The type of notification configured in WhatsApp depends on the mobile operating system.
Who has Android, can choose the high priority notifications. With the feature activated, the app shows a preview of the conversations at the top of the smartphone screen so they don’t get lost in the middle of other notifications. Go to “Settings” in WhatsApp to enable this option.
Those who have iPhone, can have a preview of the notifications too. Go to “Settings” in WhatsApp and click on “Allow notifications” so that sent messages appear at the top of the screen.
In both cases, it is possible to reply to messages directly through notificationswithout entering WhatsApp.
As the popup stands out on the screen, it is important to be careful when using your cell phone in public places so that other people cannot see your conversations. Avoid, for example, exchanging messages that contain bank details with the active feature.
