Blaming Microsoft For WhatsApp Takedown Is Madness

Its been 12 days since Whatsapp was taken down from Windows phone store and according to reports there are new 1 million windows phone users who are affected by it. Microsoft has been saying that they are working with Whatsapp to get things right and get the App back in the store but so far nothing.

But to tell it straight Microsoft has no control over WhatsApp and its not like Google or Apple to dictate terms to its apps store.To blame Microsoft for letting them take down their own app is madness.Microsoft nor WhatsApp have been willing to suggest any sort of timeframe for getting the problems sorted out which is getting users more angrier.

WinBeta reached out to WhatsApp to ask when users might be able to get hold of the app again and we were provided with the following statement:

Unfortunately, due to technical issues, we have chosen to unpublish temporarily WhatsApp Messenger on the Windows platform.

We are working closely with Microsoft to resolve the issues and hope to return to the store shortly.

We apologize for the temporary inconvenience.

Unfortunately, we cannot comment on any future timelines, sorry. Thank you for your continued patience and support of WhatsApp.

WinBeta also spoke with Microsoft who issued a similar statement:

WhatsApp Messenger has temporarily been removed from the Windows phone Store due to technical issues. Microsoft is working closely with WhatsApp on resolving the issues and hopes to return the app to the store shortly. We apologize for the temporary inconvenience.

What do you think? Would you wait for a cleaner Whatsapp or would have been ok with a faulty one?
