WhatsApps Back!


I guess Quite Soon as very soon.  After a 12 day hiatus WhatsApp is back in the Windows Phone Store.

The app has been updated to version 2.11.490.0.

New in this version is:image

  • Chat backgrounds
  • Broadcast lists
  • Privacy settings (settings > account > privacy)
  • Media auto-download settings (settings > chat settings > media autodownload)
  • Custom notification tones (Windows Phone 8 Update 3 required)
  • Various enhancements and bug fixes

It therefore appears that the long-awaited beta app has finally been published!

When asked for an explanation for the delay, a Microsoft spokesperson said once again:

Quality is a top priority for Microsoft and WhatsApp, and we worked closely and with urgency to minimize the inconvenience.
