Even though I have set “Edge Lighting” on Galaxy S8/S8+, lighting does not work when notifications from installed WhatsApp happen. Why is this?

Last Update date : 2017.07.04

In case of some 3’rd party applications, you need to set related option within application by itself.


Please check the settings in WhatsApp as following steps: WhatsApp -> Settings -> Notifications -> Popup notification


If current selection is "No popup“, please change to "Always show popup“





If you still have problem to get notification from WhatsApp after the above setting, please check if "WhatsApp" is selected in Notifications of settings.
