WhatsApp and Microsoft still working together on fix for missing app

WhatsApp

What’s up? WhatsApp is still not available for those to download from the Windows Phone Store. Late April, we reported that WhatsApp for Windows Phone was broken with no fix in sight. A few weeks after that, WhatsApp was pulled from the Store. Microsoft later clarified that they were working with WhatsApp on a fix. Now we have an update on the situation from Microsoft. Details after the break.

Head into that same Microsoft Answers forum thread and you’ll find a new update from Microsoft. Here’s the latest statement:

“WhatsApp chose to unpublish their app from the Windows Phone Store after discovering an issue with how notifications are being handled on Windows Phone 8, Update 3. We are working closely with WhatsApp to resolve the issue quickly. Thank you for your patience and sorry for the inconvenience.”

Microsoft has no specific timeline to share on when WhatsApp will return. Hopefully we’ll see the app return sooner than later. If you really need WhatsApp, despite being broken, do not uninstall it from your phone right now.

The good news is that Microsoft and WhatsApp are working closely together to resolve the issue.

Thanks for the tip Rinie!

And? Where's the f* date? 2 weeks...

adrian1338 says:

it's done when it's done

That's not really an excuse for a service used by tens of millions of peoples

dalydose says:

The number of people using it doesn't make the fix any faster.

Does make the issue unexcusable though.

dalydose says:

Why do think that because something is widely used that it is beyond breaking? The expectations based on what you want are a bit unrealistic. Is not as if they aren't working on it and none of us know what the real and specific issues are. Were DO know that WhatsApp pulled it because of a notification issue and haven't said one word. Microsoft is assisting them and the only ones acknowledging the users.

arg0g says:

I bet it does: Whatsapp and Microsoft are likely committing more resources than if the problem was with some minor app that hardly anybody is using.

Zulfigar says:

Yeah it is, doesn't matter if the app is used by a couple people or thousands, it needs to be perfect. If you'd like, learn how to code and make a new app - today!

QilleRz says:

Yes I hope they act fast because WhatsApp is a big part of my life as a student. Using it daily contacting all my friends. I have a lot of disscussions and groups there from university stuff to the personal stuff.

 

kenzibit says:

Seriously what's really wrong? How come it came in the first place? This is serious I cuz by the time it reappears, all whatsapp lovers on WP might have jumped ship.

Dare2Blink says:

Only new users will miss the app.not saying this has to be fixed asap but all WhatsApp users on windows phone already have it installed, so why the hell would they jump ship?

Arka1412 says:

WhatsApp is also not updated for f****g 5mnths and is full of bugs for all the users..Don't you get annoying vibration during the chat?

David P2 says:

If you think that's bad... Kik hasn't been updated for over 2 years.  Not even updated to use WP8.0 features.

Arka1412 says:

How many really does use kik?haven't u seen the poll here in wpcentral?WhatsApp is the most popular app...In other platforms it was updated almost 5mnths ago..and we are suffering as usual

Kik is VERY popular aming the younger people. All 16 year olds are using it.

Suhasa Su says:

You get it only when you are not chatting or you are not viewing newest messages

xratola says:

Because even though we have the app installed, it doesn't work as on other platforms.

DevCas1 says:

Some uninstalled it accidentally, others were needed to... So it is an actual problem to al of is users

arg0g says:

In view of this, I don't even understand why they withdrew it from the store. If the bug is really serious (data protection, security) they should have blocked existing installations, as well. If the bug is minor (delays in notifications or the like), I don't see the need of withdrawing the app from the store: no Whatsapp is worse than a buggy Whatsapp, especially in view of the fact that it appears to run pretty fine on WP8.1 dev preview.

Marco Gomes1 says:

It doesn't run fine on 8.1 Notifications are a joke, often only coming in more than an hour after the message was sent.

arg0g says:

I know some people have issues. Luckily, it is working fine on mine, so I'm a bit biased ;-) Still, I'd like to upgrade to the new Lumia I bought, but I cannot, or I'd loose Whatsapp altogether.

So I'd prefer to have the option of downloading Whatsapp from the store, with a warning that it may not function properly, rather than not being able to download it at all.

ahmu86 says:

Yeah true... Its not inconvenience to us... Its an inconvenience to your own OS... So the more you delay the more it affects the sales... At least here in India... What's app is a make or break app... Now there is the news in market that WP doesn't have what's app... This news will still be working even weeks after WhatsApp comes back... Further denting the sales... Like WP doesn't support data transfer over Bluetooth... Nokia fixed it in 7.8 but people still believe Lumia series don't support Bluetooth data transfer... Moronsoft...

Revi Bennett says:

Wow son, msft demselves took down whatapp?

You should have said 'Thank you' in the mail with a photo of a Rose flower!!!
Munnabhai+Gandhian style protest.

TechAbstract says:

Better switch to Groupme. It even works with people don't even have the Groupme app.

Lets stop waiting and switch over to another messaging system. They deserve a slap in the face..
So does facebook for not launching a stable app on wp

Carduelis says:

Agreed. To me whatsapp lacks vision these days, if they are going for cross-platform, why haven't they made a w8 or web version?

Reliv83 says:

In my opinion there was a random bug that let users to posticipate the expiration date. That would really explain why the app was removed by the store.

rm7forever says:

Microsoft must tell WhatsApp to update there app..

MS should atleast have the brains to tell whatsapp to publish the app for WP8.1 users since the bug is not related to WP8.1 notifications. This is seriously lame and doesn't make sense at all. There are apps in the store available only for 8.1 then why not Whatsapp?

There is a bigger show show running behind the curtains that no one is aware of and both the sides do not wish to disclose......

_Emi_ says:

yeah... let's blame Microsoft for developers who just don't know how to do their work right.
do you understand Microsoft is being too nice trying to help WhatsApp team?
it's WhatsApp team resposability to give the customers the features, microsoft has NOTHING to do with it, only for being the OS maker, it doesn't mean they can automatically fix whatever mess developer do with their app.

WhatsApp was the one deciding to pull the app from store, even for 7.5 and 8 users that had no problem (besides the buggy stuff already present on whatsapp), and Whatsapp team never pushed any update after months of months of an invisible Beta few users could enjoy.

Why should microsoft tell whatsapp the OBVIOUS?? WhatsApp knows they have to publish the app, and they should have never pulled it from store... I know maybe this is too advanced for you, but Microsoft = OS maker
WhatsApp = well the WhatsApp developer and the responsible for what happens to their app.

so again, Microsoft is being nice helping whatsapp for their incompetence. since 7.5 WhatsApp has shown that. I don't really even know why people still use that stupid app, my sisters and mom use it, I wish they would go and find something else because honestly, whatsapp, just like kik, in any platform sucks, but they obviously suck more in WP because they don't care.

Arka1412 says:

Are you this much ignorant?why should WhatsApp have this bug problem?it's obviously the shortcomings of WP..They don't have any problem in ios and android platform..so who should be blamed?Use your sense,don't just be a fan boy..

imran wahab says:

Well said, WP is going no where at this rate, oh sorry they have too much on their plate as they are a big company, WAKE UP MICROSOFT!?? And when you do, have the decency to tell your customers when you decide too do so!

dalydose says:

Obviously??  So you know EXACTLY where the problem lies?  Ugh.
Why is it that NO OTHER APP has been pulled because of this?  Please Mr. Name Caller and know everything, give us the benefit of your superior wisdom.

leoniDAM says:

Only Whatsapp has this problem with notification every other apps that I use have no problem.

the problem is in the code of whatsapp and incompetence of the development team that works on the app for Windows Phone. 

k12000lt says:

I totally agree. It's the hopeless implementation of WP8 /8.1, many apps suffer. For example, extremely limited third party file managers, gallery locking applications, no good third party video players,limitetions to adobe pdf reader, limitations in attaching files to email etc. Because WP8/8.1 allowes extremely limited approach to the core system and stupidly, gallery is included in core system. I guess it's the same for Whatsapp. It's very limited, doesn't support attaching videos etc. Correct me if I'm wromg.

MS ought to tell them because its MS that goes at stake if Whatsapp isn't there. Whatsapp is not the loser. If Whatsapp ever ditches WP, WP would dig its own grave. In several countires for eg. India where Whatsapp is stable on Android and iOS u think friends are going to change just for you because you have a WP and no Whatsapp? Sorry that's not going to happen.

Live the reality and open your eyes. Just because Whatsapp is not used widely in your country or by you, you cannot speak for the rest of the world where you haven't been. I have personally heard with my very own ears people telling others not to buy a WP because Whatsapp sucks on that platform. And mind you India has huge sales for WP....

Arka1412 says:

It's realy sad for those new users who just bought 630..what would be their 1st impression..what f*****g phone did I just buy which doesn't have the most popular IM app in their store..

guillams says:

This is how things work: There is deep things hidden in situations like this that for sure MSFT is not gonna share with the users, but for that users is just an issue...
That's why you don't have any app at all (but I'm supposing of course)

ven07 says:

This was very old news?

CokeZero98 says:

This is really bad, especialy for people who had just bought a Windows Phone. It's better to leave that ''sucky'' app in the store than completly remove it.

_Emi_ says:

obviously, but WhatsApp doesn't think that way... I mean how long did the beta stayed in beta stage and never they pushed a single fix from it to the official app? well that's how WhatsApp cares about WP users.

aafa says:

I held off from buying my first WP until there was a WhatsApp app. Just imagine hiw many people it's deterring from purchasing a new WP if they rely on WhatsApp to communicate with friends/family/groups.

umangpop777 says:

Hey aafa ... I think you should think about Android or iOS... I personally suggest everyone to not buy windows phone because it sucks :'(

npoe says:

Hahahaha, I do the opposite in my recomendations.

erzhik says:

Taking too long. Every day people buy a WP and everyone someone returns it because WhatsApp is missing

mpt15 says:

This is old news. There's nothing new in this statement.

dedracer says:

Lol nothing new! Same sayings same answer ! But no date !

N1520 says:

Wow, do you work for NSA dude?

SamiHanna says:

Google pays Marc to delete it from WP store.

Aashish13 says:

If this is true then Larry page is dead

mpt15 says:

Why does it sound unbelievable? I wouldn't put it past Google to do this. They would stoop that low.

mottle says:

I seriously can imagine this is true.

asylumxl says:

An issue Whatsapp said didn't exist and was due to Microsoft's push notification servers.

Meanwhile, it means I am avoiding hard resetting my WP 8.1 DP phone as I do not want to lose my Whatsapp installation.

Switch over to another IM, that will teach them a lesson.

ollienightly says:

Losing only less than 5% of their user base? I don't think they'd care. But it doesn't take more than a couple of missing apps to ruin WP as a platform, Whatsapp is one of them.

Murilo Neves says:

What's the name of this weather app in the screen ??

the925guy says:

Think it is blue skies

sachinrex says:

Sure I am using it..

Dinky89484 says:

Don't get why Microsoft doesn't put more urgency on fixing their Skype app and then push to have Skype be the go to messaging app?  With Whatsapp and BBM taking their time to come to WP, just update and fix Skype so that it can take on all those other platforms.

Dexter505 says:

Skype blows as a messaging app because it requires you to send requests.

pbjr92 says:

The is Windows Phone version of Skype is the worst.

Even on iOS and Android it's better. Shame on you, Microsoft!

Flavio76 says:

I made the switch to Android...was a more than a year and + Windows user....

Couldnt believe how good was Skype.

Even onedrive is good, office apps... 

 

What about the outlook app, you can send by any aliais, you choose then right on the outlook app.

really fantastic been on android now...

 

Dont hate me guys, but apps on android are fantasticaly better

Syd F says:

What app? 

sholokov says:

This is also the response you get by email from their customer service.

ktl88 says:

Let them keep working together... Great

Rick Doll says:

People are returning phones because of this?? Guess I don't know what I'm missing since I don't even use the app...

crise says:

Yes without this app I would sell my WP instantly and buy an android.

luisfarelo says:

I'm considering jumping ship to Android because of this.

Rick Doll says:

To each their own I guess. I don't see anything about this app that would make me leave one phone brand for another.

npoe says:

I have it sitting there with notifications disabled. People who want to talk with me via WA first send me a FB/Skype chat ping to check whatever they send me to WA or they just repost into FB/Skype chat. I don't think it is that big deal.

Hekal Zawawi says:

Ughhh!!! Till when should we wait??? Come on....

inseyven says:

Maybe EEUU doesn't use that app, but hey Microsoft, you have the lowest share there, and where you sell your phone is outside, and you know what? WE are who use that app as first messaging option.
So.. Well played

_Emi_ says:

do you understand Microsoft doesn't develop WhatsApp?
do you understand that simple thing?

what do you want Microsoft to do? put a gun on Whatsapp team and make them publish the app? Microsoft IS BEING nice trying to help Whatsapp team incompetence, but hey! let's blame Microsoft for what WhatsApp team is not able to do... let's blame the OS maker for developers like WhatsApp team who don't care about doing a good job, a good job and fast, and it's clear they dont care about WP users.
maye we can blame Microsoft because kik never updated their app after 2012, I mean... it makes sense to blame the OS maker!! /s

duh....

inseyven says:

It's not all about WhatsApp, Microsoft doesn't care about people outside the U.S. we just support them and they ignore us, so good job

npoe says:

I don't live in USA and although I think they can be better they are not as bad as you want to think.

taturo says:

For you information, MSFT says they CERTIFY ALL APPs, so they should get involved, so SHAME on MSFT for being so dumb on NOT understanding their own business!!

npoe says:

I have worked with software companies as a client and they can quickly fix small stuff like notifications if they really want to. Obviously WA doesn't care and is asking something really big from MS... you just have to think the 5 months without updating the app.

The only thing that MS could have done is to stop rolling out update for WP8 and stuck the OS because WA would end broke... if you ask me I prefer to see WA gone that WP8 stalled.

I made a hard reset when they unpublished the app ;(

x I'm tc says:

This is why it is unconscionable that users can't back up the contents of their phones.  Once I've downloaded an App, if I am responsible enough to back it up, it should be mine forever, regardless of whether the developer or MS decide to delist it.

umangpop777 says:

Yes i agreed... I also uninstalled this app because i have the package install file ... And the hilarious thing is when i was having WhatsApp the manually installation procedure saying available....
And when i uninstalled WhatsApp (without worrying its published or unpublished status because of backup) then it started to say Unavailable. so disgusting thing Microsoft .... Why do you want to restrict all people when they have paid for it??? No restrictions is the key of success of Android :/

You're. Right , WP needs much much more fixing to be like android :/

My friend works as Manager on CLARO here, he always tries to sell a Windows Phone (most of the time 625 and 520), but the very first thing that users asks it's sort of "I never heard about this Windows Phone, are all the apps available (WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter etc ... ) ?

A LOT of costumers simply give it up, even if you say that issue it's temporarly. I really mean it ... A LOT of users.

crise says:

well of course, in many countries where whatsapp is the nr1 messaging app nobody would want a phone that doesn't have it. WP will honestly get 0 sales there.

Dare2Blink says:

Uau that is strange, how addicted must someone be to WhatsApp to the point of not buying a phone because it will be absent for a few weeks?

'Cause a non-expert person doesn't understand that. I'll never gonna buy a phone without Whats App. Mostly of my friends and family are there.

ahmu86 says:

Its not an addiction... Its just a very efficient, simple and free chatting app which every one else is using so even tho I may not want to use it... I have to as most of my family, friends and business contacts use what's app... So its not addiction its a necessity...

npoe says:

I don't know I have seen several times that they will start to charge. My account expires next year.

It's the same as if any person on the US would have the option to buy a phone without SMS capabilities. No one would buy it.

ChiquiTolky says:

You are just buying a phone, why would you have to wait to have what you need? When just there in your eyes you have options

Ultimateone says:

So there is nothing new to tell us except the exact thing before...ok

Madhu T C says:

What is this app?!!. Never heard before ❗❗❗

sachinrex says:

Finally an alien in WPcentral!!!!???

Aashish13 says:

Alien spotted where is the media?

Madhu T C says:

Hope there is place for aliens here.

sachinrex says:

Yep..lot of places like Windows Phone where developers treat us wp users like aliens!!

antonioiii1 says:

I love the wallpaper of the Lumia in the photo. Where can I get it?

This was such a dumb move from whatsapp to unpublish the app as if they had awesome ratings.. Its getting embarrassing day by day for every windows phone fan!!

dray111 says:

I heard from a friend of mine who's got the beta version that it would just fine... Plus is got a ton of extra features over the original app.... So I know this might sound silly... But it there anyway in which the beta becomes open to the public... It would definitely help everybody.....

Aashish13 says:

Atleast they should provide beta version to public like others do

Yes agree they should open the beta up while they fix the main..

Aldo Rossini says:

very slowly zzzzzzzzzzzzz

crise says:

it was always a sucky app with sucky notifications, they why didnt they pull it a year ago? and the year before that? heck, with this logic it should never have been in the store..

actually whatsapp notifications were working just fine 80% of the time... enough to keep it in the store. even with no notifications at all it should be kept in the store.

what bullshit this is!!!!!

ghaikal says:

What's new !!!!!

patjay68 says:

So the new thing here is... There is no new thing... Usefull...

At least they are being honest about it this time

imranjazib says:

And they worked together forever.

Who is at fault? Microsoft or WhatsApp? What's app realised the issue and pulled it from store and Microsoft then started working on it. This means its Microsoft who is at fault here and the issue is not new. Meaning that what's app had to remove it so that MS takes it seriously. Come on MS the more time u take to fix the issue the more customers u lose. It may be just a messenger app but it is The Most Essential messenger app. Its really frustrating. All of this and MS wants people to switch. Lol.

Aashish13 says:

Yes ur right. Some negative PR hapening here in India with wp.

Wowack says:

Yes, lets all blame MS instead of the incompetent app developers. Lets blame them for a broken 3rd party app. /sarcasm off. WhatsApp hadn't been updated for 5 months, and you're trying to say that Microsoft should have fixes the issues instead of the actual devs? Stupid.

If the issue is with the gdr 3 update then why have they started working towards fixing it in may 2014. They should have done this immediately after the gdr3 update came out. Personally I have been experiencing delayed notifications on wp8.1 also on my Lumia 520. Most of us will be upgrading to 8.1 in a month or two so they should rather be focussed on 8.1 and look towards the notifications issues & other issue of the app being sooooooooo slow.

This is too bad for the platform's reputation. And its has taken really long time.

N1520 says:

While i see why the developer pulled the app from the store, i completely disagree with how they treat their customer. We now pay for this service, so we wish for some kind of feed back to stop all the speculations and the rant. I'm affected in this problem because i bought my L1520 after it was pulled, and I'm hoping for a better app when it comes back.
And by the way, making a new entry in the forum for absolutely no info added is BS. Seriously.

RAWAD_K says:

This situation is horrendous I bought a new windows phone and sadly the WhatsApp is not available. What should I do with the phone then. Oh god, I'll just be patient then

crise says:

Return it and get an android or iphone

"quickly","quickly","quickly". If that's quickly can't wait to see their slow work

In a month or two I'm going to buy a new phone, I love Windows Phone , but I'm really thinking about to buy an Android. Really thinking.

N1520 says:

Do it. I've been jumping between platforms and I do have android and WP now. Try everything. You wont appreciate what you have unless you try something else.

Aashish13 says:

For the time if u buy wp your gonna miss just watsapp but of u buy a droid ur life is ruined with lags, bloatware,malware etc

Android with Kitkat is not as laggy as it used to be.

If Bbm arrives before Whatsapp .. Consider me using not whatsapp ... I'll use Bbm forever

Aashish13 says:

Even I but like in being forced to use watsapp coz my Colg grups are on watsapp. So imp conversrstions, notes etc happen there.

vassilis1924 says:

That's completely idiotic in my opinion. They should focus on how to make the app perfect for WP 8.1 . This will be the version of the OS the coming months. GDR3 is on the hood for many months and they did nothing(5 months without update).

crise says:

this is the same news at 2 weeks ago. non news.

raiinman says:

Gdr3 is the excuse. They just realized 5 months later. Problem is with 8.1 and MS not admitting it.

Revi Bennett says:

Yeah the problem is with 8.1 yet people on windows gdr3 have notification issues, yeah sure.

vassilis1924 says:

Sorry, it might be just me, but I have notification problems with every messaging app I've used. And the apps I've used until now are these three: Messenger(Facebook), Whatsapp and Telegram beta. I'm on WP 8.1 DP fully updated on Lumia 925.

Florin Ilies says:

Because i also made a hard reset after the app was taken down I had to start searching for alternatives. So far LINE is the best app I found. Too bad we can't use the beta version....

anirban130 says:

Its like asking game developers to make for 512mb ram support devices which are 1gb ram supported games

Raesu says:

So fail. What ever happened to the "huge" update they were working on?

A lot of users in Brazil are switching to Android when buying new phones when they know that this app is missing. That is a very big problem to WP ecosystem. Maybe someone on Nokia/Microsoft doesn't see this.

dbcontext says:

Seems like whatsapp is taking Microsoft and Windows Phone users for a ride. Smells like a sabotage.

Madhu T C says:

It reminds me the days when Microsoft and Google used to work together.!!!

ttsoldier says:

Same thing they said two weeks ago. Lol

MikeSo says:

I wonder what "working together" means. Can WP Central do a little journalism and find out? I mean, we could read that answer ourselves on their message board. It's time like these that news sites could be valuable as something other than just link aggregators.

What say you, WPC, ready to step up to the plate and try to find out what's going on here? Without being afraid of losing "access"?

CraUmm says:

Please get in touch with some WhatsApp employee who has just made a million dollars from Facebook, and grill him on the issue.

MBaughan says:

Where's Rudy Huyn when you need him?! I bet he could make a killer WhatsApp app in less than 2 weeks.

Madhu T C says:

WhatsApp has no public API for others to use.

panesar7 says:

Telegram beta seems quite promising.

sachinrex says:

But almost all friends are in WhatsApp!!

Aashish13 says:

Telegram should hire the old watsapp CEO to their company.

terchoo says:

I believe majority is moving towards Telegram messenger. Whatsapp i think your countdown had begun.

Aashish13 says:

In India BRINGING CHANGE is not easily possible. In terms of software avg users don't care about that. They will go where more public is there. Certainly true

Why won't they provide the old version on the store until they fix the new one?? I rely on whatsapp daily, just got a new phone and now i'm scre###d! 

And what about the Youtube app Microsoft? Working closely with Google too for the last 8months? Microsoft is so full of s#$t!! 

You Redmond idiots are digging your own grave.

Sincerely, a WP fan. 

Rangan Das says:

Looks like Microsoft is not so good at working closely with other companies. :P

Aashish13 says:

I don't want any stupid google apps in windows store. Look at the app google inc had made for wp. Of u know that then good if u have not seen that app made by google you will really feel like vomiting seeing that awful app

Rangan Das says:

It was there on Microsoft Answers for a while. This news is old.

Aldo Rossini says:

Why not release the damn beta for everyone?

True that could work

milfermon says:

This never ending story....

I like the sound of it.. Moronsoft...

FernandoDB says:

Folks,

We’re listening, and understand you are eager to have Whatsapp returned to the Store.  At this time, I don't have a specific timeline to share beyond the following statement from Microsoft:

 

“WhatsApp chose to unpublish their app from the Windows Phone Store after discovering an issue with how notifications are being handled on Windows Phone 8, Update 3. We are working closely with WhatsApp to resolve the issue quickly. Thank you for your patience and sorry for the inconvenience”.

 

We know it is taking longer than expected to find a solution and make WhatsApp available again. However, quality is a top priority for Microsoft and WhatsApp and we want to get it right. Rest assured, we understand your concerns and are working together with urgency on a resolution.

 

Thank you,

Eli A.

andyqkw says:

What is there to work on, Windows Phone 8, Update 3 is already history. Don't tell me Microsoft is gonna release a Update 4 to fix this WhatsApp notification issue???

Just release Windows Phone 8.1 to the general public now and let the OEMs and Carriers take their own sweet time testing/optimising their firmware for a later firmware update release.

Aashish13 says:

Sooner or later that means 1 month??? When cyan arrives?

DaKidIndian says:

There's always that one guy on every important app-related article going on about how he never cared for said app and can't understand why the rest of the world does.

Few of my friends brought lumia 630 ! On my recommendation and now WhatsApp fucked it up ! They are without WhatsApp cursing me -_- and many others not switching to WP cause they are afraid WhatsApp might not return :/

Revi Bennett says:

Sure?

Wait until it's back in the store

Rayyanism says:

I just bought Windows Phone. Switch from iOS to Android and now to Windows. Such a disappointment not to have WhatsApp on my Windows Phone. My family, friends and colleagues are using WhatsApp to communicate. When my friend told me that she wanted to create group chat for an outing, I apologize to her and said Sorry, my windows phone do not have WhatsApp. What a shame! Definitely I will switch back to Android and iOS after using Windows for less than a month.

Revi Bennett says:

So you bought wp one month ago and did not download the most important app, because, whatsapp was pull two weeks ago. LIAR!!!!!

That's not what he said. Please reread and no fanboism this time.

What a bunch of queens replying and dying cause of WhatsApp. It's like some have orgasms when using WhatsApp. (ill bet some do) Also Funny that people think Microsoft has a big part with What's F-Ing app. No they don't! In this case its that team Whatscrap is simply to late with responding after the tons of Complaining people. The decisions are theirs not MS. To back up @ _Emi_. Microsoft is doing good helping Team Whatsapp, fixing things that should have been fixed earlier.

raiinman says:

This is old news and seriously 2 weeks with all the experience on both sides can't resolve a notification issue. There has to be something more to this story

You are better than Conan the detective

Apparently no news website wants to take their head out of the sand and find out what though.

The death of WP began with this, Europe, India, Brazil some of the most important WP markets and they cannot live without Whatsapp. Microsoft really is blind to this situation.

Seriously! In India people mainly just need three things the most WhatsApp , facebook and candy crush ! 1st and the 3rd is presently not available on wp and facebook app sucks too ! They have no reason to buy wp ..cause they don't think beyond these 3things
