WhatsApp Not Working Globally Due To Software Bug

WhatsApp Not Working Globally Due To Software Bug”

According to DownDetector, a website that provides realtime overviews of Internet and mobile services, Whatsapp is down across Europe.

WhatsApp, the internet messaging app, went down across the world this morning and users were struggling to cope while having no access to the banter on their group chats.

Scores of users from India, South Africa and the United Kingdom took to Twitter to voice their dismay.

WhatsApp official released a statement after fixing the outage problem.

WhatsApp was down for many users across the globe around noon on Friday.

Due to an unknown issue affecting the smartphone app, users were seeing the clock symbol after attempting to send a message, meaning that the message hadn't been sent to WhatsApp's servers.

More details on the nature and cause of the outage weren't immediately available. Facebook or WhatsApp are yet to officially comment on the outage. This feature has been rolling out to all smartphones using WhatsApp.

The global outage lasted an hour. "This issue has been fixed and we apologize for the inconvenience", a spokesperson said. The service began functioning again some regions around 30 minutes after the first complaints began popping up, Reuters had noted. But the latest outage is a blow to WhatsApp and its ambitions of becoming the world's de facto messaging platform.

Since a couple of hours, billions of users have resorted to Facebook and Twitter to reach their friends and family.
