    Is there any Official Whatsapp forum? I would like to suggest something for the iOS app.

    I’m noticing we (iPhone users) are not able to receive vibration alerts without our phones having to be in "Silent Mode" (switch turn on for silent mode on the side of the iPhone).

    What this means, is that we have two options: Hear a sound for each message when we are NOT in silent mode, or feel the notification (vibrating) when we ARE in Silent Mode. But what about having ONLY a vibration when I’m NOT in silent mode? WE DON´T HAVE THIS; AND ITS A HUGE DEAL, let me tell you why.

    I have other third party apps, or even native ones, that I like HEARING (reminders, calendars, emails.. hearing them is more crucial and not annoying since they are not that frequent), so in this case a user simply uses his iPhone in normal mode (switch of silent mode off), BUT in this position, I would like to only FEEL (vibrating) Whatsapp notifications, (with every other app making a sound); AND I CANT. I don’t want to hear every Whatsapp notification since they are many of them, and my only option is to select "None" in the sound in notification settings section, but that way I wouldn’t hear nor FEEL the notifications.

    In conclusion, what do I/we want that we can´t do ever since?

    Have a "Vibrate Only-Sound" in Whatsapp settings, for us to be able to have the iPhone in normal sound mode, and at the same time, be able to be notified (without sound) about our Whatsapp notifications.

    Do you get me? AND IT’S SIMPLE! Many other apps have this "Vibrate Only" Option.

    isn't this achieved by going into settings>notifications>whatsapp and switching off "sound"?

    Nop, that does the same as if you picked up the "None" sound inside Whatsapp settings. You can try and confirm me.
