I have a new Samsung A71 mobile phone, my last one was Sony Xperia X and its had one feature which I liked very much, it used to show number of messages on whatpaa icon and also on the sms messages icon. It was so usefull to see if there is any unread message as it used to notify you the unread messsages, say you rad the top five and skipped one which was way below and you dont see it on the screen the notifications shows still the number of messages unread.. Does the A71 has a similar function, I tried everything - but couldnt find it.. thank you ..
Good Evening @userCIc3MdT54v
To make sure I am on the same page as you, you would like to add the app "Icon Badge" to your Messages and Whatsapp. Let's start with messages:
Tap and Hold "Messages" app > Tap "App info" > Tap "Notifications" > Turn on " App Icon badges
Tap and Hold "Whatsapp" app > Tap "App info" > Tap "Notifications" > Turn on "App Icon Badges"
I hope this helps please keep me posted.
