    some people say their circle of friends use viber, some say whatsapp, personally, my friends and i use whatsapp, even our older family members use whatsapp, its really widespread and is almost the defacto name/tag for instant messaging where i am, i doubt FB bought them to lose that reputation

    I think it is the right time for BBM or Telegram to launch their apps/official app in case of Telegram and grab the windows market.
    I don't see BBM coming until August.

    you asked a wrong question.

    The real question - how long Whatsapp takes to return on WP again?
    month
    quarter
    half year
    year
    decade
    century
    Millennium ( ok, I think I gone too far now)

    and those user(mostly new users) who doesn't have whatsapp and want it their phone.
    "Happy waiting"

    After all in WP ,actually "W" stands for "Waiting" .

    I guess I give them until my phone has a problem that requires a hard-reset. At the moment I care not much about the situation as my Whatsapp is running pretty well on 8.1.

    Microsoft should care a whole lot more.

    I still can't believe this is not even OUT yet? Whatsapp should've been taken down and be back in a few hours, it's been almost 3 days!! What about all these people trying to buy the Lumia 630 in Asia? Not able to download the #1 app for Instant Messaging? These things only happen with WP !! So annoyed, it's like a complot!!

    There are a few alternatives to Whatsapp. Microsoft Rooms, Voxer, WeChat, GroupMe, Line all can do group chats

    Short answer: WP will die fast here in Germany. A phone without whatsapp is nearly worthless.
    Facebook literally has Windows Phone by the gonads. This is unacceptable. If I were Satya Nadella I would cut Facebook's throat like Gates would do in the old days.

    LINE is so much more reliable than WhatsApp anyways.

    Fine by me. I never installed it because they treat WP as a second class citizen and since Facebook bought them never will. Telegram for me.

    Sucked for a brief moment for those who use it but it has already been mentioned that it will come back. No biggie then.

    ...I think "second class citizen" is a little harsh. I don't think we can equate WhatsApp priorities to the inequality faced by immigrants, gays, people of color, and women...

    Well, I can't speak for the WhatsApp vs Skype comment, but WhatsApp is pretty awful for alot of people. Frankly, there are just as good, and even better, IM options these days. I don't think its selfish to say, just try something else. ;)

    (Alot of people just assume WhatsApp Delivery ✅ is accurate. I have personally found their push delivery to be terrible, via testing on a friends phone. For no reason whatsoever messages won't push. I can't tell you how many times I've opened WhatsApp and had suddenly messages come through, like Push was off and it wasn't. My data wasn't weak or anything. If you google WhatsApp reliability, you'll see its a cross platform issue.)

    Whatsapp is the standard in Switzerland. Everybody uses it, alternatives are sometimes used, but not as consistent as Whatsapp.

    When Whatsapp doesn't come back, I'll buy another phone.



    I agree. But here it's not only friends. It's just everybody. I could convince my friends to use an alternative, I can't convince my entire address book.



    Then, sell it to me, everybody here who wants to sell his phone if WhatsApp never comeback, sell it to me!

    Come on! There is a lot, A LOT of alternative to that app! I don't gonna throw away my precious Lumia 925 for an app!

    What exactly should I sell to you? That comment makes no sense.

    You have to do whatever meets your needs. If you don't need or use Whatsapp, that's splendid. Good for you. Nonetheless, I need it. I need it that much that it's a reason to change to another platform should it not be available anymore.

    Even if this wouldn't be a rational decision - I have explained why I need it, it's the standard here, everybody uses it - it would still be my own decision to make. And believe me, if it would never return, Windows Phone would it have even much, much worse than now in the Swiss market.

    It's strange anyway that I have to defend my opinion in a thread that asks for an opinion. Don't you think?

    Anyway, I highly doubt that they won't bring it back. There's even a Blackberry version after all.

    WhatsApp is just non-negotiable for me at this point. Everybody uses it here in Germany, and all of my friends in America do, too. It's like not having Skype, Facebook, or a maps program.

    Over the years I've seen so many chat clients popping up and disappearing.
    Who remembers ICQ, AOL, MSN, MIRC, BBM etc? Who thinks that WhatsApp is here to stay is mistaken. In a few years there will be something new and WhatsApp will be one of the apps that has become a vague memory.

    In a few years Apple might be gone. Google might buy Microsoft. Civilization might be destroyed by a third world war. What should I care right now about that?
