Cross-platform messenger and SMS-replacement app WhatsApp has reappeared in the Windows Phone Marketplace today after its mysterious disappearance earlier this month. WhatsApp's newest iteration, version 2.8.0.0, is still free-to-use for the first year of service despite rumors that the app would resurface with a $0.99 upfront price tag. In addition to performance improvements, WhatsApp's toolbar now includes "Search," "My Status," and "Create Group" options, according to WindowsPhoneApps. While some emoticons have reportedly been removed, the app's configuration menu now offers more granular control over notifications among other small changes. We're still waiting for WhatsApp's official comment on the removal, but until then feel free to give it a try yourself.
