    Hello All,

    I tried all the suggested steps above and also the suggestions from the website below but the issue still remains for me.

    I can only receive the messages instantly when I leave my Whatsapp application open/online.

    As soon as I close it and the phone is idle for about 5 – 10 minutes, I can’t receive any notification or any Whatsapp call. I can only see them when I open the Whatsapp application again.

    Any help would be very much appreciated. Thank you in advance.

    Best Regards,

    I used DisableService app to deactivate GcmService from google play services app but it messed up my notifications
    Reactivating it fixed my delay issue

    There is nothing modified in the article. And there no such thing mentioned as a “DisableService app” article. Make sure you read the article thoroughly and understand whatever is written. Would appreciate no further inappropriate comments on the articles.
