Chandigarh, October 25
Meta-owned WhatsApp is currently facing a global outage, including in India, as multiple users reported that they cannot access the messaging service or get a single tick even for delivered messages. On Twitter, #whatsappdown is trending.
According to Down Detector, over 85 percent of people reported problems while messaging, 11 percent while using the app, and 3 percent while using the website.
In India, the affected cities include Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, and Lucknow, but users from the US, Germany, South Africa, Bahrain, Bangladesh and several other countries also complained on the platform that the service is currently creating a disturbance and not working smoothly.
Users in India also faced trouble while sending images and videos.
Early this month, Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram and Messenger went down for millions of users, including in India, as they were unable to send or receive messages on social media platforms.
People took to Twitter to report their problems with Facebook family apps, including posting memes and GIFs.
