WhatsApp Windows Phone app unavailable, notifications bug still being worked onWritten by Ron on May 26, 2014 - 09:26AM @ronwinbeta
There is no denying that WhatsApp is a popular messaging service. In areas of the world where SMS and MMS are expensive, WhatsApp fills the void with a cheaper and likely better solution. Recently, WhatsApp was down momentarily, but the service returned back to normal within a few hours. However, the big concern is the Windows Phone app.
Not too long ago, WhatsApp was taken down from the Windows Phone store due to technical issues with the app. This app is still unavailable as of May 26th. Microsoft is working alongside WhatsApp to fix a notification bug that has been plauging the app, hence its removal from the Store until the issue has been fixed.
No ETA was given as to when the app will return back to the Windows Phone Store. It is currently Memorial Day in the United States, and this holiday weekend might just slow things down a bit too. For those of you who happened to time it wrong and uninstall the app right before it was pulled from the Store, you are going to have to keep waiting until it becomes available again. We will let everyone know once the app returns to the Store.
In the meantime, have you been using another app or service in it's place? Let us know in the comments below.
