A few days back there was an unannounced removal of WhatsApp for Windows phone from the Marketplace. Nokia Netherlands has confirmed that the sudden disappearance was due to a committed upgrade to a newer version and removing bugs and issues.
When WhatsApp initially disappeared from the Marketplace, the team clarified:
“There is no security issue in the application due to which it is removed and app is still available for the users which have WhatsApp already installed on their windows phone devices, it’s attributes are private currently”.
According to Nokia new version should be available in Marketplace within 48 hours. Nokia assures that this information is totally correct as its based on internal backgrounds.
We haven’t received the confirmation from WhatsApp yet, but it sounds like good news for Windows Phone users.
Michael: There are also rumours floating around that a huge update is coming for WP8. The removal may be related to that.
Cheers Upamdebnath and AkhilRaj.
