WhatsApp for Windows Phone: the new updated version fixes annoying connectivity issues

whatsapp for windows phone bug wa webFor those of you who use WhatsApp via Windows Phone devices, today we have some news that will certainly cheer you up. In fact many of you have complained because the app wasn’t working properly due to a bug, with messages sometimes getting lost in the middle of conversation.

The bug caused connection disruptions between users’ phones and the servers, so that messages were no longer sent or received. So far, users have partially solved the issue by unlocking the phone, launching WhatsApp and opening the conversation again. This procedure allowed to reestablish again the connection between the phone and the server, restoring the synchronization. Well, thanks to this latest update, users won’t run into this problem again.

So, if you are an avid WhatsApp user, we strongly recommend you to install this latest version on your device. You can already find this latest update on the store and, as usual, you can download it for free.

Good news also for Brazilian users, after the federal supreme court has suspended a judge’s ruling that ordered mobile phone companies to indefinitely block access to WhatsApp (for the third time in eight months). The decision was taken by judge Daniela Barbosa who claimed that WhatsApp’s owner (Facebook) had shown “total disrespect for Brazilian laws” after the company’s refusal to intercept messages sent through its service in order to help in a criminal investigation.

But the supreme court president Ricardo Lewandowski decided otherwise, saying that the ruling seemed “scarcely reasonable or proportional.” The decision has obviously been commented by Jan Koum, WhatsApp’s CEO, who, in a post on Facebook, stated: “It’s shocking that less than two months after Brazilian people and lawmakers loudly rejected blocks of services like WhatsApp, history is repeating itself.”
