As Windows Phone owners are probably aware by now, WhatsApp for Windows Phone has been removed from the app store. Previously it was claimed that this was due to technical reasons and that they were working on fixing it before returning it to the Windows Phone Store. However it has been more than 10 days since then, what gives?
Well in a recent statement by Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore, he offered an update of his own, claiming that Microsoft had been working hard with WhatsApp to resolve the issue, and that the app should be back soon. “Sorry for being quiet about WhatsApp. We’ve worked with them to get a fix built and expect it to be back QUITE SOON.”
This is probably a silver lining as previously Microsoft released a statement saying that they knew it was taking longer than expected, but they wanted to make sure it was a quality release. Unfortunately they did not provide us with a time line, but hopefully if Belfiore’s statement is anything to go by, Windows Phone users won’t have to wait much longer before they will be able to get their hands on the app.
Either way we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for the app’s return, so do check back with us at a later date for the details.
