Same crap as before the update. [emoji35]
Sometimes badge counter won't resettet after reading all messages.


No matter how i open new messages, via widget or notification bar.

Supposedly, this update should fix that issue!

What's New
2.11.238
add option to group mute dialog to show/hide notifications
add option to delete media files when deleting media messages
add unread count badges for Samsung devices (recreate your homescreen icon if it is not working)
fixes to allow more audio attachments
add Slovenian and Azerbaijani translations

I suggest you update Whatsapp. Mine showed up right away, but if not, re-add the icon.
I have Samsung Galaxy Grand. Even after uninstalling & re-installing WhatsApp and recreating homescreen icon, unread count badges does not appear on icon!!!

Peculiar, it works fine for me...

Oh. I'm using Apex with Apex Notifier. Maybe it's a touchwiz bug?

Are you using stock TouchWiz launcher?

That counter works in TouchWiz if app supports it since it's TouchWiz feature. I use Nova launcher and don't have that counter (Because it works ONLY in TouchWiz, If I'm right)

But without any 3rd party notifier app that badges count work only on TouchWiz if app have that feature + permissions

Apps with
Code:
<uses-permission android:name="com.sec.android.provider.badge.permission.READ" />
<uses-permission android:name="com.sec.android.provider.badge.permission.WRITE" />
permissions most probably have badges count
