Did you enable Android support at boot? Did you allow WhatsApp to start background services while booting?

I must correct myself. After I re-tested the functions, I also have to confirm that the sound notification from WhatsApp on the Xperia Xa2 does not work. There are no problems with the Xperia X.

I think I have the same problem. XA2 Plus, Android background on boot. On lock screen no sound with WA notifications. If WA is active, default message sound. If phone goes to sleep, message sound continues for a little while. Then no sounds. With WA on web, phone lights up and notifications shows. So something is working... Telegram has same sounds with notifications and after last update that works well. So I hoped that WA started working as wel, but no luck.

With the update to version (Nuuksio), the sound notifications for WhatsApp now work on the Xperia Xa2.
