Not Receiving WhatsApp Messages unless I Open the App

Sometimes there is happened that we are not receiving WhatsApp messages unless we open the app. This issue mostly occurs with thousands of people worldwide. Unfortunately, we have turned on sleep mode in our mobile phone settings. I have seen this case on many devices. If you have an IOS 14 then this problem also comes to you. WhatsApp’s notifications not working in Android 11 and WhatsApp notifications not showing on the home screen are the same issues. We will discuss here its solution and how we can check the issue and solve it.

Not Receiving WhatsApp Messages Solution

Many people have this issue. Most of these cases are found in Android 11. We will solve the problem of Android 11 first because it is used a lot. There are many options that we don’t know about in our android phones. Some apps and functions are extra for us Because they are of no use to us.

When we buy a new mobile phone and set it up in a new way, we have some redundant apps that we disable by going to settings. But even with that, we start to see ads in some apps that we can’t block in any way. New mobile phones have an app to remove junk notifications that prevent any kind of notifications from being shown. And so there are some settings that turn off apps running in the background on a mobile phone.
