Now, Joe Belfiore, VP of Windows Phone development team has revealed on Twitter that they are indeed working with WhatsApp team to resolve the issue. The following tweet also revealed that the bug was related to notifications.

The app has been available from the past 3-4 days. I am currently using the newly released Nokia Lumia 630 and have not been able to install WhatsApp which is a major let down. I hope that the bug gets resolved soon and WhatsApp gets back on Windows Phone Store soon. letting new users able to install it. WhatsApp and Microsoft should further make sure that they don't leave users in such an issue moving forward.
