Disable Galaxy Watch vibrating for muted WhatsApp Messages

First Poster



most of my WhatsApp Groups are muted on my mobile phone. I get the messages as notifications but without ringtone or vibration, because sometimes groups do really escalate.

But when I receive a group message from a muted group on WhatsApp, my Galaxy Watch vibrates. But I don't want it to vibrate, that's why I muted the group. Can I deactivate it also for groups?

It's really annoying, when I receive 20 new messages in a group and everytime the watch vibrates.


Remark: I do not want to completely disable WhatsApp messages. Only the muted groups should not give a notification feedback like vibrating on my watch. For normal conversations the vibration is desired.


Best regards,

Same problem here.. Incredibly annoying to have my watch vibrate constantly with messages from muted groups. Sometimes I just take the watch off because of how unbearable it is. I wish there were a solution to this...

Send it back is the best solution, making sure samsung understands to sell quailty not cheap hash of a not so smart watch, if this watch could take a test it would be a d-

Why is this issue still not solved, it looks very important to me. I had to disable WhatsApp notifications because of this. But WhatsApp is nowadays the most important communication app.  I'm getting to much notifications from muted groupchats so at this point i have no other option then disabling WhatsApp notifications.

I've the same issue. All whatsapp muted groups are being to vibrate my watch. It's a very annoying situation. Is it a solution?

Agree. Same for me.


If I muted a group if for a reason,

I hate it re-pop-up on my whrist!!!
