How to enable WhatsApp notifications on Mi Band 6?
Step 1: Launch the Zepp Life app on the mobile device you’re using. After that, to go to the next stage, tap the “Profile” tab that is located at the bottom of the screen.
Step 2: Tap “Mi Band 6,” which is an option that can be found in the “My devices” area, on the screen that follows.
Step 3: Tap the “Notifications & Reminders” option that is found on the screen for setting the band.
Step 4: Tap on the “App alerts” option on the notifications and reminders screen. Furthermore, you can choose to activate notifications for incoming calls, text messages, and completed goals.
Step 5: Slide the “App alert” switch to the “On” position in the “Application Alerts” tab.
Note: If the message “ Unable to access notifications ” appears, tap on the warning, and on the next screen, activate the Zepp Life application key, allow everything, and then goes back to the previous screen.
Step 6: In order for the Mi Band 6 to get alerts and notifications, the Zepp Life app must run in the background; therefore, select “Settings” and provide the required permissions.
Step 7: After you have granted the permissions, navigate back to the screen that displays application notifications. By using the slider that is available next to the option that reads “Only receive when the screen is off,” you can configure Band 6 so that it will only vibrate when the screen is off.
