A couple of weeks ago WhatsApp pulled its app from Windows Phone citing some technical issues. “WhatsApp chose to unpublish their app from the Windows Phone Store after discovering an issue with how notifications are being handled on Windows Phone 8, Update 3,” Microsoft is quoted as saying

Since then, WhatsApp was working with Microsoft to fix the issue.
