    So i have been wanting to try out windows 10 mobile for a while now but didnt because i only have a single phone which i use for my daily use. But the current build looks quite stable. So i want to give it a shot. Can anyone tell me what happens to my existing whatsapp account? Do i need to reactivate it or it works normally without any reactivation?

    WhatsApp works normally, without activation after you upgrade to Windows 10 10581 Technical Preview.
    Note: It requests activation when your phone is restored to 8.1 from 10, and also if you performed hard reset.

    It'll work normally. But you'll lose your chats, I guess.

    If you make a backup to sd card most probably it will ask to restore during initial setup. Make sure not to erase your sd card during hard reset.
