Vibrate does not work for Whatsapp notifications - New msgs for Direct or groups chats

I have checked all related settings and it seems to be correct, This is the only app having the issue.

I have tried clearing cache, reboot, re-install etc - No luck in fixing it.

I tested other IM apps like Telegram and it worked, New msgs on instagram also works


  • I believe that if we were to award a gold medal for the most buggy program in the playstore, Whatsapp would win it without a problem and for several years to come :)

    Try to turn the Whatsapp notification tone on and off

    This works for some users, for others when you turn off the tone it turns off the vibrations again. to test for you.

    It is not an Asus problem, post your message to Whatsapp, they know very well the problem which concerns many brands.

  • Hi Felix J,

    Can you check the above. I am using What's App on vibrate and with sound both works fine. Mostly it seems What's App issue. You may wait for an App update.
