The latest update on the beta channel on WhatsApp gives you control over your notifications and it is called high priority notifications.

On the beta Android app (ver 2.18.117), when you enable high priority notifications, your notifications will be pinned on top of the notification centre in chronological order.

This works like the chat pinning feature we have had on WhatsApp for a while now which allows you to pin your favourite chats at the top of the pile so that you can get to them easier.

In both iOS (ver 2.18.41) and Android users (web users), you will also be able to dismiss admins.

The new feature enables group admins to demote other admins.

Earlier, group administrators had to remove other admins to demote them, before re49-adding them to the group as ordinary members.

But, with the new feature, they can just be demoted to a member without being removed. You will be able to locate this feature in the Group Info menu.
