    It means you won't be able to reinstall it because Whatsapp have pulled it from the store completely for some reason - you can't even reinstall it if you already have it. See thread WhatsApp removed from Windows Phone Store | Windows Phone Central for more info.

    I wish they would at least warn us before removing the app? I just got a Lumia 1520 as a gift for a family member and have to set it up for them. They use WhatsApp religiously. Now they'll have to keep using their old phone until it's back up just because of one app. Utterly amateur and ridiculous on WhatsApp's part.

    I'm sure it's safe to assume they are updating it with a newer version.

    But why would they remove it? Since when is it necessary to completely remove an app from the store before an update? We don't even have any word from them whether or not a major update is ahead or when the app will be back in the store.

    Is there any way at all to install the app (a patched version for example) if it's not in the store?

    Excuse my stupidity but how do I do this? I can't find the xap file from the store's Whatsapp link on PC - WhatsApp | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    Scroll down to the bottom and the "download and install manually" link is what you want. Plug your phone in and copy it to the memory card. Unplug and if you go into the store there should be a new option along the lines of 'install from sd card'. Might not work if you have WP8.1 however... I know that's how it was done in 8.0

    Thanks but there is no "download and install" manually link on the page :(. Am I missing it somewhere? I even did a search within the page hoping to find it. Are you able to see it in the link I provided?

    If anyone has the xap file, could I trouble you to send it to me?

    Completely speculating: Maybe it is getting republished as a Facebook app

    Ok this is weird... I still don't see it. Can you look at the screen shot I attached? I'm in the United States... does that make a difference? Could I trouble you to send me the xap file?

    **EDIT** Nevermind, it turns out I wasn't signed in and that's why the link didn't show up . Sorry, and thanks a lot for the help!

    I still see it on Google Play (Snap), and BlackBerry World. I'm sure they are just updating the app for WP

    Crap, put the file on the SD Card, went to the WhatsApp page in the store and no option to install from SD Card :(. Any other suggestions?

    *EDIT* Turns out you have to wait several minutes before the option shows up in the store. Unfortunately though, when I go to SD Card from the Store, Whatsapp is showing up as an "unsupported app" and doesn't let me install it.

    Anything else I could try?
