    Skype, Viber, Line do not work well at all. Including issues with notifications. Yes some have indicated the problem maybe with the MPNS (Microsoft push notification server) but it seems to be occuring mostly with third party apps. Facebook is built by MS people themselves (probably outsourced however) whereas Skype is it's own separate division.

    Beta has been out for 3 months actually which I think is the maximum period allowed by the store. Either a release is imminent or there will be another Beta back in the store (private beta though). Expect to hear something tomorrow at Nokias event

    Skype notifications are also inconsistent for me (Brazil). Also I noticed that the bult in FB chat does not receive notifications for messages sent from contacts who use mobile clients (e.g. iOS Facebook Messenger).

    where i can find beta testers?? they need to show us some pics of updated version, and some thoughts about its working/notifications etc
    As mentioned SEVERAL TIMES before.

    -The update IS coming
    -You are allowed three months private beta. Three months is not up as yet
    -The new update REMOVES the audio API
    -As of last we've heard, the interface stays the same. You are not able to change the background etc
    -Emoticons will be changed
    -Notification are dependent on Microsoft Servers, NOT whatsapp!
    -There will be fast remove
    -Ability to voice call


    These are old screenshots.

    There are not 2 servers ?
    One from the Application side (in this case Whatsapp) and another by Microsoft side MPNS (Microsoft Push Notification Service)?
    Just asking :B

    I really hope we could send multiple images at the same time on whatsapp.. Its really annoying when we are with friends and take pictures and afterwards we send each other those pics, all they need is send once and alot of pics comes but for me i need to send every photo separetly.. And about video sending, i hope gdr2brings ability for devs to let their apps send exited videos from the phone, since we need that so much in whatsapp and skype

    But Good Sir, what is your definition of "soon"? In this case, what is your estimation of the timeline defined by "soon"? I think I need morphine to control the anxiety :P

    Is Microsoft awair of the fact that push notifications are working very unstable?
    Whatsapp and VIBER notifications are always terrible late...
    Is their any discussion going on somewhere about this topic?

    Regards

    You have no idea when it will be released, your guess is as good as anyone else's so stop saying soon when you've no idea. Your not a beta tester and a beta tester doesn't have any clue as to when it will be release. You don't have any inside information on whatsapp, so quite acting like you do.

    I was really hoping for a release today, but let's face it. It's not going to happen :(
    Let's hope it get's done this year...

    Since the betatesters said that the notifcation problem is also happening in the beta, we can just give up on having a stable whatsapp, all that is going to happen is that it will probably start faster and have a fast-resume. Stability is even more important to me... :(

    The Viber update yesterday has the exact same notification problems as Whatsapp so it does look like it could be MS fault... No one can say for sure if it will be fixed until the new update is out. It's highly unlikely that it will be released tomorrow, I can't picture Nokia revealing the new Nokia 1020 and then saying "Great news! We've an update for Whatsapp today" That would be a bit embarrassing lol :-D

    no it wont be embarrassing, they can say something like that, we are working with devs closely to bring best out of their apps to windows phone community , for example we are happy to release updated whatsapp for windows phone, ... blah blah blah talking about some new apps ....

    on lumia 925 unveiling nokia showed few new apps so we can hope for some apps this time too, im hoping for subway surfers :)

    I just can't picture them highlighting an app update at a big press event for the Nokia Lumia 1020. New apps yes, but updates no way :-D The whatsapp update is nothing major, it's just some bug fixes and enhancements. It could be released tomorrow or next month or when ever but its release won't have anything to do with a Nokia event.

    Of course I'd love to be wrong! :-D

    Can some betatester try this out? I would really love this feature as well!
    Just go to the picturehub, select multiple images and try to share via whatsapp. As soon as multiple pictures are selected, currently you are unable to share via Whatsapp, only email :(.

    So as expected, the press conference only had the lumia 1020 and it's steroid fed camera :/

    Whatsapp will surely be out by 2014 :| And God only knows what will come off this notification problem that seems to be getting worse on a daily basis...

    Whatsapp messages on my Htc windows 8s are in very late last four days. Sometimes this problem came and lasted only one day or couple of hours but this is going on now for almost a week. It's really annoying when I'm waiting for the notification that a message came but not a beep and than I enter whatsapp and the new unread messages appear. Of course when I read them, 10 minutes after the notifications start to pile up like the messages just came but I already read them. I tried uninstalling the app and instaling again, also turning off and the phone but nothing is helping.

    Seems that my push notifications are coming back in ok on my lumia 800.
    Also tested this on the lumia 620 of my girl and this also goes well. Did MS do something?

    This is my conversation with Microsoft.

    You: Since some time I don't get my push notifications properly (Whatsapp, Viber). Many people are complaining about this. What is being done about it?
    Derek B.: Yes, currently there is a known issue with the notifications with WhatsApp. Currently or Engineer team is working with the developers to resolve the issue, but I have not been informed of a timeline for the resolution of this issue.
    Derek B.: I would expect it to be sooner then later with the growing concern.
    You: It's not only on Whatsapp, also Viber.
    You: Do you know about that too?
    Derek B.: Yes, this issue is currently known with Viber as well.

    Didn't ask about that specifically, but I assume they do, and that it's all part of the same problem.

    Its all about the code lads, a bug in a relatively new os can be like looking for a needle a haystack,or so I'm told!! Like Nokia just made a balls of the here drive update and they make the phone, I can understand whatsapp's plight!!

    I was hoping for Whatsapp update to be announced today at the Nokia Lumia 1020 announcement but that didn't happen unfortunately, which means I can't still persuade my friends to switch to Windows Phone.

    But I have a good feeling that Whatsapp update will be announced in 2043 when Nokia announces Nokia Lumia 4020... and then I will show off to all my friends how good Whatsapp is on my Windows Phone... finger cross guys just another 30years wait.

    Whatsapp will update next year, I am sure. The WP OS is abandoned and ignored by both Microsoft and Whatsapp. Microsoft takes it too long to put in some basic features such as independent sound profile, while Whatsapp shows no intention to have Whatsapp debugged and updated.
