    Not sure why people can't just wait for the update? I am considering existing users who still can us WhatsApp. It still allows you to send and receive messages. Let them take their time and I am sure they will come up with good features.

    Well, remember that... and I'm pretty sure that some folks have paid for it, what id they had it deleted and it want it back now... and whatever, it's also a fault by having Whatsapp on the front of all WP Advertisement, when you come look for it it's not there, for 1 week... it's not 1 day, 2 days, 3 days.. .it's 7 freakkiiing days... when is this back? we never know, I'm starting to think they're doing it in purpose, it's so stupid that a "bug" can't be fixed within a day or two...

    I understand the frustration, but thinking that they are doing it on purpose is baseless and quiet silly. What reason do they have to do this on purpose? It only creates negativity against the app and the company, WA has nothing to gain from that. MS is involved now and delisting is a drastic step as well. They clearly have a big issue that they tried and couldn't resolve on their own, so they decided to remove the app to avoid any more negative comments and will list it again once the issue is resolved.

    You can speculate about WA not allocating enough resources to the WP development or the possibility that their WP dev team is not strong enough, but there is no logical reason for WA removing or not updating the app just to mess with WP community. It makes no sense and no one has anything to gain from them doing so.

    We are all frustrated with the current state of the app and the fact that it's been removed and there have been no updates, but that's no reason to put on tinfoil hats.

    For those of you thinking its Friday today, a Whatsapp update is possible....Its not coming out today. Joe Belfiore just tweeted yesterday that MS is working with Whatsapp and the update will be out soon. If it was so soon as 24hrs, he wouldn't have even made the tweet.

    India is a huge Market and someone wants to stop Microsoft to capture such potential market. Something suspicious and not at all normal.. Seems to be purposeful. This is just defamatory way to stop Microsoft. People in India started liking windows phone, people are amazed with wp8.1 update.. 8/10 said my next phone is windows phone.. Just one WhatsApp has deteriorated reputation. I am afraid and I doubt WhatsApp active participant of this scandal.

    I think you need to look up the definition defamatory. The app is not in the store, that is a matter of fact and therefore there is no defamation regardless of whether WP market share is being affected or not. Is MS also in on it? Because based on Joe Belfiore's tweets, it looks like WA is openly working with MS to resolve the problem that lead to a delisting of the app.

    Erstwhile, the last update was possible when Nokia had worked with WhatsApp. Remember that multi selection update!! So is that always necessary that WhatsApp team would fail and wait for Microsoft/Nokia to come and rescue the update? I doubt WhatsApp is actually working for windows phone version! Or just Nokia & Microsoft are developing at WhatsApp Inc permission!
    Anyways, WhatsApp is not a concern but defamation of windows phone.

    From my experience with the word soon coming from Joe it is probably 2 months at least. I hate how many people use the word soon when it is not applicable.

    Let me ignore your unnecessary things in your post and make a reply.

    It's fact that I'm sharing. I have ample of mobile vendor clients, I get first hand information.

    And you can't comment if don't have any knowledge of it.

    I'm not sure what you are trying to say, doesn't seem to make much sense, i'm just going to chalk it up to an ESL issue, which is totally fine. But once again, look up the definition of defamation, what you are doing may be deemed defamatory, what's happening with the app on WP is not defamatory in any way, it might be damaging to WP user base but that doesn't mean it's defamatory.

    interesting, can you please elaborate as to what exactly is fact in what you've stated? Because I see a lot of speculation with regards to some sort of a conspiracy to defame MS by removing WA from the store, none of which is based on fact

    I doubt that Whatsapp missing far awhile is going to have a big long term impact on WP sales. So far WP had been plodding along at a moderate pace. Big things that are predicted to make sales skyrocket, such as updates or device releases, have not worked out that way. I don't think this will make a significant impact either.

    Lol you're saying that you know for a fact that the Whatsapp development for Wp is being hindered on purpose?
    Please elaborate.

    I am talking about existing users who are using this app after it was pulled from the store. Shouting for updates wont help them.

    What if the bug had happned with Android or iOs, would it be fixed sooner than it is for Windows Phone? OF COURSE! That's what most people are whining about, the lack of development, the lack of interest... if this was an Android issue they would've made an official statement, would've posted some Tweets by Whatsapp team themselves and would've made this problem be gone in a matter of hours, a day at most... but they're like , who cares about WP ... I mean, who cares? obviously we do, that's why I'm here... but the world IS NOT going to wait for Whatsapp when all they need is a phone today... now, who wants to hold for a week or two to buy a phone? People in this world aren't all tech savvy geeks, they just need a phone with pictures, camera, whatsapp and fb, instagram and twitter... PERIOD - whoever says , look at other platforms like We Chat and Line and Viber, lol NO ... they wnat whatsapp , period

    ^ Sure. It's all a numbers game. There are 800 million Android users out there and 300 million iPhone users, compared to 'only' about 50 million Windows Phone users. WhatsApp recently announced they have 500 million active users. Assuming the platform distribution is more or less the same, WA has about 20 million WP users, compared to ~350 million Android users and 130 million iOS users. Not taking into account Symbian and BlackBerry, but you get the idea. So of course most of their resources are going to be allocated to the other platforms, simply because there's more money to be made there. Which is of course a vicious circle, because if the app continues to lag behind the platform will not grow and there will never be a reason to invest in it.

    Interestingly enough, I'm still on WP8 GDR3 and the WA notifications have been working exceptionally well for me lately. I have had occasional problems with them in the past with toasts arriving late or not at all, but it's like ever since they pulled the app from the store my notifications haven't missed a beat. Kind of makes you wonder what the hell the problem is :P Although I'm sure the WA devs are wondering the same thing, or else they'd have been able to fix whatever issues they've been having on their own without MS getting involved.
