In Ghana, WhatsApp is our primary means of conversation that isn’t in person. That means that at any point in time, you are receiving a lot of messages on your phone. Sometimes it’s so stressful that you think you’ve responded to a message when you actually haven’t. Here are some hacks to help you avoid missing important WhatsApp messages.

Make Use Of The Custom Notifications

Assigning custom notifications to different groups and individuals means that you will know who is texting as soon as a message comes in. That way, you know how important a message is as soon as it comes in, and you don’t have to keep checking your notifications to see if you’ve missed anything.

If You Prefer Your Phone On Silent, Do This

If you’re the type who would prefer their phone to be on silent most of the time, you can also take advantage of the custom vibration feature. You can set a custom vibration duration for different chats so that you can tell who’s sending a message from the way that your phone vibrates.

If there are people that you absolutely cannot afford to miss a message from, then you can assign them a custom notification light. That way even if you miss your phone ring, you can tell that there’s a new message from that person or group.

Customize The High Priority Notification Settings

WhatsApp allows you to set high priority notifications which are previews of messages that you get as they come in. You can turn this off for chats that you don’t think are too important, and on for messages that you would like to see as they come in.

Final tip: mute groups that aren’t too important, otherwise during hours when the group is active, you will keep getting distracted.
