I already installed WhatsApp on my Lumia 525. Today when I searched for WhatsApp in the Store nothing turned up. When I go to my app and check for updates, I am displayed with a message that it's not available for my phone. Where is WhatsApp?

Post is related to a rapidly changing event.


WhatsApp has been temporarily pulled from the Store (starting the evening of May 17, 2014). A new, improved version has been published on the store on the 31st of May.


I've read that WhatsApp is still available for WP 7.x devices, but can't confirm this myself.

This is not the first time WhatsApp has been temporarily pulled from the store.

Rumor has it WhatsApp might be preparing a paid version of the app.

Joe Belfiore tweeted two updates on the situation: For those w Q’s on Whatsapp: they pinged us about an issue that popped on notifications, we’re working with them on a fix. More info soon. Ps - the notifications core in wp8.1 is different than wp8. The WhatsApp issue is in wp8 upd3. How's your wp8.1 notifications experience?— joebelfiore (@joebelfiore) 1 2
