Exclamation Whatsapp Vibrating when vibration turned off in App

Hi Guys,

I've noticed a problem with my Whatsapp the last couple of days, I have single messages to vibrate when coming through, but group messages to not vibrate (I'm in a lot of groups and its problematic when I'm at work )

I've uninstalled/reinstalled, and its swtiched off in app, but no matter what, I still get vibration when a group message comes through, which is a lot.

Has anyone else noticed this? I've looked through the S5 settings but cant seem to find anything to fix it. It's only happened since I updated WA 2 days ago.

Also, I should add, I changed my cache from dalvik to ART, so maybe that could be it?

Cheers.

In groups or single notification... there is an independent configurations; I had ART and Dalvik and no vibration at all

Hi Mate,

I never had any issues at all until the other day, I originally used the in app settings to control vibration, but even if they are both off it wil still vibrate for new messages,

I've gone back to Dalvik as the phone was begining to lag and hang, but still have the issue with whatsapp.

Sorry guys, I didn't realise it was that confusing.

the break it down.

Until the latest update (about 3-4 days ago) I had single messages in WA to vibrate, but group ones not to vibrate. This was controlled in the App itself, via settings -> Notifications.

So I had Vibrate: Default for Message (single) notifications and Group Notifications Vibrate: Off.

BUT it still vibrates for group message, even though its off.

Does that make sense now?

Hello!
I'm having a similar problem, did you manage to find a solution?
I had opened a thread about it here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/gene...-help-t2824223
I reported the bug to Whatsapp, they told me it's a feature lol! I asked them if this was indeed a feature then what's the use of the "default" setting under notification->Vibration. No answer.
I upgraded Whatsapp about 5 times to different new versions to no avail. I even uninstalled it and reinstalled it to no avail.
Is there any solution? Can we use tasker to fix this?
Thank you kindly.
