WhatsApp tests priority in notifications for Android; know how to use | Social networks

WhatsApp Beta has gained support for Android's priority notifications. The feature keeps the messenger?s warnings always on the spot even after other notifications arrive, and can be configured separately for individual and group conversations. In this way, the user can prioritize only direct message alerts from friends, and keep notifications from groups with low priority.

In the tutorial below, see how to enable priority notifications on WhatsApp. To use the function, I need to update the messenger to beta version 2.18.117 and have Android 5.0 (Lollipop) or higher.
