WhatsApp is down: iPhone and Android users have provided critical advice, with a repair expected soon.
WHATSAPP users are still having issues tonight, following a severe outage of the popular chat service. The corporation has now released some crucial advice, indicating that a remedy is on the way.
You’re not alone if you’re having trouble sending a WhatsApp message tonight. Hundreds of thousands of fans have been forced offline and unable to communicate with family and friends after the popular chat service was attacked by some major gremlins. The troubles started around 5 p.m. BST today evening, and many individuals are still unable to access the service hours later.
Most users are currently receiving a popup that simply says “connected” along with a spinning circle while attempting to publish a message – or send anything amusing in a group conversation.
WhatsApp hasn’t said much about what’s causing the issues, with the Facebook-owned business only requesting information “”We’re aware that some people are having difficulty with WhatsApp right now,” the company said. We’re attempting to restore normalcy and will provide an update as soon as possible.” We’re aware that some folks are having problems using WhatsApp right now. We’re attempting to restore normalcy and will provide an update as soon as possible.
Thank you for being so patient!
However, with so many users experiencing issues, WhatsApp has began to respond to some customers who have written messages on Twitter asking if their Android, iPhone, or internet connections were to blame.
“It’s not you, it’s us,” WhatsApp’s official account remarked on Twitter. The team has also stated that it is “working on a fix as soon as possible,” however no time frame has been set for when everything will be back up and operating properly.
Expect more details soon, as WhatsApp has been quick to patch outages in the past, such as the one that has brought things offline tonight.
This current outage has impacted not only WhatsApp users, but also Instagram, Facebook, and Facebook Messenger users. It’s unknown what’s causing the firm’s server troubles, but it’s certainly a severe issue that will take some time to resolve.
