Windows Phone 8 users may have been still missing the popular instant texting application WhatsApp app. It has been not made available, but now, to their good fortune, the app is returning back to the new updated Microsoft operating system for mobile phones and tablets. The developers of the app have now decided to roll it out for the Windows Phone 8-based devices. Probably, the arrival will take place by next week.
The news of WhatsApp arriving to WP8 devices came from a Nokia Care representative who was quoted on WPCentral website.
WhatsApp is a well accepted cross-platform instant texting application that permits mobile users sharing of files, location, and even group chat.
When the app was taken away from the Windows Phone Store recently, Nokia Lumia 920 buyers and also the potential buyers of it were surprised and it was hard to believe the absence of the app. Also, rumor became viral that the app will shortly be turning into a paid app.
It appears, the developers are rolling out Windows Phone 8 version of the WhatApps app as the present version is not able to adjust to the new devices completely. The first developers of Windows Phone 8-based models won’t have to wait any longer for the app. It may come live by this weekend.
Even though HTC has released Windows Phone 8X in India but Nokia fans as well as Windows fans are still waiting for the next Lumia smartphone running on WP8.
