Apparently, Softpedia is carrying a new piece stating that the WhatsApp messenger will soon come back for the Windows Phone. The report says that "WhatsApp has finally listened to users' feedback and has decided to fix all the notification and battery drainage issues that lots of Windows Phone users have experienced since Microsoft launched Windows Phone 8.1 Developer Preview."

The report adds that even though most of these issues related to the app "only affected Windows Phone 8.1 early adopters," Microsoft's Joe Belfiore has confirmed that the "notification core in this version of the platform is different than in Windows Phone 8."
