Messaging app with VIP features

It is 2019 and I won­der why there are no mes­sag­ing apps that will let me choose the peo­ple from whom I wish to receive noti­fi­ca­tions. Right now, the noti­fi­ca­tions are all or none deal and I default to none. Which is bet­ter, but not best. As peo­ple start get­ting detached to devices and start pri­ori­tis­ing their offline lives, I think there would be a lot of demand for a user-cen­tred noti­fi­ca­tion sys­tem.

The clos­est I know is of the VIP fea­ture in the iOS Mail app. But that’s not good enough. My dear­est peo­ple will not email me; they either call or text.

I’d be very will­ing to open my wal­let for such an app. Let me know if you know of any. Although I am scep­ti­cal that some­one will build such a user-friend­ly app, I’d be thrilled to be proved wrong.
