    er, searching the MS Store for WhatsApp will just get you WhatsApp Desktop - which has been there for a long time.

    The new app "WhatsApp Beta" is hidden, can only be accessed by direct link

      Telegram < Whatsapp

      Using Telegram.. i get annoyed by "Your friend" have join Telegram endlessly.
      Telegram do not have CarPlay...
      Telegram calling.. i have to tap once in the message.. then tap again to call.
      Everyone is on WhatsApp, only a handful is on Telegram.

      So.. nah.. Still Whatsapp is the default for the majority.

            Try using the Telegram PC app, then come back with a better response.
