Canada’s public broadcaster says the mystery behind its controversial Whatsapp app has finally been solved.
The CBC revealed the app, which was designed to keep track of important social events, has now been removed from the market.
It was a central feature of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s election campaign in 2016.CBC News’ Kevin Donovan, reporting from Montreal, says that the app is no longer available on Apple devices.
“The app is now available on Google Play, the Google app store, Microsoft Store, Amazon Appstore and Windows Store,” Donovan wrote.
“However, the app does not work on the Apple app store.
That’s because the app uses the Apple system, which does not support the app.”
The CBC says it will not be releasing a statement on the situation until the company can confirm the fate of the app.
“As soon as we have more information we will share with the media,” the CBC said in a statement.
The government announced last week that it would scrap the controversial app.
