How to Enable WhatsApp Popup Notification in Android

By default, popup notification in WhatsApp is disabled.

If you wish, you can enable it for individual and all chats. Let's see how to do these tasks on an Android Phone.

Enable Popup Notification for Individual Chat

Note: The following steps are the same for the group chat too.

  • angle-right
    Open WhatsApp.
  • angle-right
    Hit the chat of a contact for which you want to turn on popup notification.
  • angle-right
    Tap the name at the top.
  • angle-right
    Between the "Mute notifications" and "Media visibility," you can see "Custom notifications." Hit it.
  • angle-right
    Hit "Use custom notifications."
  • angle-right
    Under "Message notifications," you can see “Popup notification.” Tap it.
  • angle-right
    In the popup, select the one you prefer (of course, except “No popup”). If you’re not aware what the options in the popup do, then please refer to the next section in this post where I’ve talked in detail.
Selected Always show popup option

That’s it. All done.

If you want to revert, then turn off “Use custom notifications.”

Open WhatsApp.

Hit Overflow menu (three vertical dots) > Settings > Chats > Notifications.

If you want to enable popup notification for the chat of all contacts, then follow the below steps:

Only when screen “on” - popup notification will appear only when the screen is on.

Always show popup - popup notification will appear regardless of the status of your screen.

Pick the one (of course, except “No popup”) you prefer.
