WhatsApp has returned to the Windows Phone Store

Earlier Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore announced that WhatsApp for Windows Phone would be making back into the Windows Phone Store “quite soon”. When he said that, we assumed he meant it would arrive in the coming days or week, but apparently it was a lot sooner than we thought because it looks like WhatsApp has made its way back into the Windows Phone Store. The app is currently available for download via the Windows Phone Store, and if you’re a Windows Phone user who hasn’t downloaded the app yet, you now can. 

Not an hour ago, Microsoft stated that they were working closely with WhatsApp on a fix for a bug which caused the app to incorrectly display notifications of certain versions of Windows Phone. Joe Belfiore on Twitter claimed that the app would return to the store “quite soon”. Nobody knew how soon, but apparently soon means within an hour or so because WhatsApp is back in the Windows Phone Store. WhatsApp for Windows Phone was pulled with no warning from the Windows Phone Store about a week ago. Microsoft nor WhatsApp commented on its removal for some time, which led users to believe that WhatsApp had pulled support for the platform. That was obviously not the case, as Microsoft came out a few days later explaining the current situation. The app returns with a number of new features too, including chat backgrounds, broadcast lists, custom notification sounds and more.
