WhatsApp back online after global outage of 'a few hours'

WhatsApp icon

According to Reuters, a WhatsApp spokesperson after fixing the issue said, "Earlier today, WhatsApp users in all parts of the world were unable to access WhatsApp for a few hours".

The app stopped working at around 9pm United Kingdom time on Wednesday leaving people unable to send or receive messages. @WhatsApp became a trending mention in South Africa around 11pm Wednesday, with the hashtags #Whatsappdown, and the more locally-relevant #Whatsappdownsa also made appearances. WhatsApp has now joined Instagram in boasting more Stories users than Snapchat has in total. WhatsApp hasn't commented on what caused the unscheduled downtime. Moreover, the company was working to restore it as quickly as possible.

According to a variety of reports on social media, WhatsApp users in Nigeria, Mexico, Spain, Chile, Israel, Russia, Ireland, Switzerland, Aruba, Turkey, the USA and other locations have experienced problems. At the time of writing, the app is not working when connected over both Wi-Fi and the cellular network.

Instant messaging service WhatsApp has suffered a major outage across Western Europe, Asia and America. In it, it was saying that the service was down because of a service outage.

We remind you that three years have passed since the official Twitter account of WhatsApp has been used for reporting statuses of an issue. This outage lasted several hours before the issue was resolved.

"WhatsApp users in all parts of the world were unable to access WhatsApp for a few hours".

Doing this will ensure that no matter how many messages you get from different contacts, the one that matters to you the most stays on top, and you don't miss it.
