Samsung galaxy watch and whatsapp calls

I've bought my galaxy watch yesterday and everything is working perfectly except for the whatsapp call. Im recieving all notifications even from whatsapp when someone sends me a message but when it comes to whatsapp call the watch doesn't vibrate or do anything to inform me that someone is calling me on whatsapp untill the call ends then the watch sends me a notification that i have a missedcall. However, im recieving phonecalls normally and when someone calls me a normal phone call the watch vibrates and allows me to answer or decline. Is their something i should turn on or do for the watch to inform me when someone is trying to call me on whatsapp like vibration or anything and not just send me a notification about a missed call when the call ends?

Hi purchased galaxy watch yesterday and paired it with Samsung Galaxy S9 plus. The WhatsApp call feature was working fine and the watch was even displaying the name of the person who was calling. However, next day (today) the watch is not showing the WhatsApp call notification. No software got installed over phone or watch overnight. 

If you guys know of any setting that needs to be changed, kindly advice.

Thanks

Try changing the notification settings in the wearable app. Toggling between on and off for all the notifications you want. If nothing works try resetting the watch and pair again.

Thanks for the reply, I have already tried toggling the notification settings in wearable app. It didnt work so i tried resetting the watch and paired it again. Still the issue didnt get resolved. 

Was excited to see this feature but it went away next day 😞

However when I am on a whatsapp call with my headphones, the small green phone is displayed on the watch but with incorrect information...
Help!!!!!!!!!!! 😞 😞

Hi there, can you let me know which security patch level is currently installed on your phone as part of the software upgrade. You can view this Setting-> Software Update -> last update

Mine is 1 January 2020,however the call notification feature worked for me on the first day of pairing the watch with samsung s9plus phone (24th march). From next day it doesn't work .
