Fix Delayed WhatsApp Notification

Recently we have received a lot of messages saying that WhatsApp messages are late or after opening an app. But do not worry, we have several solutions to this problem that work on all versions of Whatsapp.

Many manufacturers like Sony, Asus and Samsung offer battery saver mode to remove maximum performance from the battery in their devices.

Some users also use an app like Battery Doctor to keep their batteries running for longer periods, these apps help you save more battery power. But, it comes at the cost of optimization, they put the device in sleep mode, as well as cut the mobile data connection or your Wi-Fi connection.

Therefore, make sure that you have deleted all Power Saving applications and Disable Power Saving Mode from your device.
