WhatsApp Down for Millions of Users Globally

The Instant messaging app WhatsApp is down with millions of users reporting that they are unable to send or receive messages.

Users claim that they switched on and off the Airplane Mode on their smartphones and even switched off and on their data services to see whether there was any problem with their smartphone network, only to later find out that WhatsApp is down for millions of users.

Many have taken to social media platforms, such as Twitter, to complain that the app, which is owned by Meta Company, is not working.

A Meta company spokesperson Josh Breckman said that they are aware of the hitch and that they are working to resolve it.

"We're aware that some people are currently having trouble sending messages and we're working to restore WhatsApp for everyone as quickly as possible," he said.

The outage was being experienced in many parts across the globe and the outage tracking website DownDetector recorded a spike in the number of problems recorded at 10 am Tuesday.
