WhatsApp is down, and users are unable to send or receive messages.
The world’s most popular messaging app appears to be down, potentially impacting billions of users.
The app would allow users to type messages to their friends and then send them. However, they became stuck and never delivered.
It means that users are likely sending and receiving messages without them being delivered, which could cause problems.
The problems caused a massive spike in reports on the outage tracking website DownDetector, with users reporting problems from all over the world.
WhatsApp does not have any official channels for informing users about outages. It does not have an official status page, and it has a Twitter account that was intended to document problems but has not been used since 2014.
It also maintains official Facebook and Twitter accounts, neither of which had been updated in response to the outage.
WhatsApp is the world’s largest chat platform, with over two billion monthly active users, and the third largest social platform after Facebook and YouTube.
