WhatsApp Down: Users have been reporting that WhatsApp is not working for them. As per Downdetector’s WhatsApp outage map, the service is having some problems in India and some other regions as well.
Users complained that they were not able to use the Facebook-owned messaging platform since 2.50 AM . The down detector map shows that the outage was particular to India only.
Some WhatsApp users also headed to Twitter to complain about the issue. They said that they were not able to send or receive messages. The app is reportedly just loading and showing ‘connecting’ sign.
The problem appears to be only with some users as the app works perfectly fine for us. We tried sending messages, media files like images, videos and more and all of them were delivered instantly.
One user tweeted: “Is it just me or WhatsApp is Temporarily down, cause my photos, GIFs, and voice note fail to deliver. Any other person with this issue?”
Another person tweeted: “WhatsApp Media Sharing is down from past 45 minutes Oh my god! Unable to send any photos or videos.
“Are you facing it too? If yes which country are you from? #whatsappdown”.
It is the latest series of outages from the Facebook-owned messaging platform following a major incident in March last year which left users cut off for nearly an entire day.
The issue is widespread & has affected a mass audience. Many troubled users have taken the route of Twitter to express their ongoing concerns & issues. Have a look at a few complaints down below.
