Whatsapp removed from Windows Phone Store

After having broken down from the Windows Phone 8.1, Whatsapp has disappeared from the Windows Phone Store and has done so without promising any fixes soon enough. If the app is searched on Windows Phone, the phone simply displays the message reading that "We couldn't find a match. Try a different spelling or search term."

However, the app can be seen listed on the Windows Phone Store website but that is of no use since it comes with a warning that "This app is no longer published", and thus no option to remotely install it.

There is still some confusion as to why the app was completely removed from the store. It seemed to be working on Windows Phone 8 and only had issues with the updated Windows Phone 8.1. a possible explanation in this case might be that knowing that Windows Phone 8.1's release was imminent and that their app would offer a less than satisfactory experience as a result, WhatsApp opted to remove the app until they get it updated.

This also shows that the app might have had some serious bugs which couldn’t have been allowed to exist thus the app was entirely removed.

"Unfortunately due to technical issues, we have chosen to un-publish WhatsApp Messenger on the Windows Phone platform. We are working closely with Microsoft to resolve the issues and hope to return to the store shortly. We apologize to our users for the temporary inconvenience."

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
