Is WhatsApp Web not working for you? Millions of people have been unable to send messages due to a global outage.
Having trouble logging into WhatsApp Web? Millions of people have been unable to access the world’s most popular app via a web browser such as Chrome or Safari due to a global outage. The issues, which began at 4.50pm BST, have also affected iPhone and Android users.
For millions of users around the world, WhatsApp Web isn’t working. From laptops, desktop PCs, and tablets, users can transmit text messages, photos, and PDF documents using their web browser, such as Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, or Apple’s Safari. Users can also read through their existing solo and group chats using WhatsApp Web. It now also enables one-on-one and group video conversations, according to a recent update.
People who use WhatsApp Web to communicate with friends, family, or coworkers, however, have been unable to use the messaging network owing to a massive outage. WhatsApp users on iPhone and Android have been unable to send or receive messages, as well as make or answer audio and video calls, due to continuous global difficulties. WhatsApp Web is reliant on the smartphone version of the program to communicate with WhatsApp servers, hence it is currently unavailable due to the failure of the iOS and Android versions of the app.
The outage, which is affecting users all across the world, has been recognized by WhatsApp. The Facebook-owned firm sent an update on Twitter, saying: “We’re aware that some individuals are having problems with WhatsApp right now. We’re attempting to restore normalcy and will provide an update as soon as possible.” According to independent firm DownDetector, which tracks customer complaints across social media to monitor the operation of internet services, the scope of the ongoing outage has been disclosed. More than 70,000 WhatsApp users were complaining the service’s problems every minute at its height. That massive scale is unsurprising, given that WhatsApp is the most popular messaging service on the planet, with over two billion monthly users.
