    Is it just my device?

    Unless a notification is swiped away or attended via the Action Centre, they won't go away! This is not the case with the notifications from the OS's applications, namely Messaging, Outlook, Phone etc.. It is so only with third party apps, namely Messenger, Whatsapp, Twitter etc..

    Consider this scenario - A friend sends a number of texts on Whatsapp. I notice that and open Whatsapp by clicking the tile and I read the texts. But, the notification is still there! I find it a bit annoying. And, to make it worse, if I click on one notification and attend all others within an app, except the one that I clicked, everything else is still there in the Action Centre.

    I certainly can live with it, but I really expected this to solve with the overdue Whatsapp update, which hasn't. Seems to me that the problem is with Microsoft holding some APIs private. Just speculating!

    Any thoughts people?

    Yes, it is due to Microsoft. Currently, third-party devs cannot do what you want. :/

    I'm sorry but just trying to understand, how are you so sure about this? Are you a WP developer?

    How about when there are multiple notifications and you click on one of them?

    Yes. But there are degrees of problems ranging from an asteroid heading straight for you to having to exhale just to make room for the next inhale.
