Updated: WhatsApp for Windows Phone receives major update

whatsapp betaUpdate:

The WhatsApp update is causing issues, as reported by many of you. After update, users are not able to use the app, as it gets stuck at creating favorites or else nothing shows up in Chats and groups.

While WhatsApp needs to issue a bug-fixing update to take care of the bugs urgently, what you can try is  uninstalling and reinstalling the app. After re-installation, when you will open the app it will ask for restore of message backup, don’t do it or it will again get stuck at Favorites. This way, you will lose all your chats, but WhatsApp will start working again.

    Same here

    • As far as I read that problem is related to users who have the Preview for developers…

      I could contact whatsapp staff and they told me a few minutes ago that released a new version 587 that must solve such problem.

    This update broke WhatsApp for me as well. Chats are gone and when I tap on a contact the app hangs. WP 8.1.

  • After updating my app to this version (2.11.586) I’m not being able to use whatsapp anymore!
    It opens “normally”, but don’t show any conversation nor group.

    When going to Configurations -> Account the account expiration shows as “Unknown” and inside Privacy I get a message regarding the app being offline.

    But everything besides whatsapp is working fine on my phone, I can open whatever I want over the browser or other apps…

    Did anyone had the same problem??
