Can someone help?

When someone calls me on WhatsApp, the prompt (WhatsApp call screen) doesn't appear, and I have to unlock the phone and answer the call from the notification drop down?

Why is this?

My question too? I have a S20 ultra and my hubby has a S21 ultra and it's doing it on ours as well. Maybe some new settings?

you'll need to take a look at app permissions for notification. that should solve your issue.

hey again, alright let's give these steps a go, hopefully we can do it the simple way!!

1.Open WhatsApp and go to Settings > Notifications and make sure the notification preferences are turned on.

2.Check the Do Not Disturb settings. These can affect the kind of app notifications you receive, how notifications show up, and when you get one. Double-check to make sure this feature isn't making your WhatsApp notifications silent.

3. try backing up all WhatsApp data manually through the settings in the app, then go to Settings, apps, WhatsApp and clear data and cache then run the app and restore back up and test again.

4. Update the WhatsApp app, sometimes apps needs checking for updates manually but could still work without somewhat. Via PlayStore.

5.Check if Low Power Mode is turned on. Many devices have a feature that automatically deactivates background app activity and notifications when the battery power runs low. Check to make sure this wasn't activated accidentally.

6. Unstable WhatsApp, (you still have your backup) reboot your device and reinstall!

let's try these first, and continue if this doesn't fix it :smiling-face:

Are notifications turned on for the Whatsapp? You might also want to check the lockscreen notification on your phone.
