If you're a Windows Phone user and looking to download WhatsApp, you may need to hold your horses for a while. Last week the app quietly disappeared from the app store, following some technical errors hounding the Windows Phone-version of the app. While users who already have the app are still able to use it, others simply can't download WhatsApp anymore.
When requested for comment, Whatsapp owners Facebook responded: "Due to technical issues, we have chosen to un-publish WhatsApp Messenger on the Windows Phone platform." The rep added that Facebook is "working closely with Microsoft to solve the problems" but hopes that it will return to the store soon.
With the 8.1 update for Windows Phone set to hit next month, Microsoft are working on smoothing out any potential kinks. With the sort of popularity WhatsApp has amassed, both Microsoft and Facebook must been keen to get the app on track, in time for the long-awaited release.
