Users criticize Meta as WhatsApp stopped working globally
WhatsApp users across the globe are facing trouble while sending and receiving messages. As per the website Downdetector an outage-detecting website, WhatsApp went down at approx. 12:50 PM IST and over 1,50,000 users had reported problems with the app from different parts of the world.
WAbetainfo, the portal tracking news, and updates about WhatsApp have confirmed the down and informed the following features are affected.
Since messages are not communicated to the server, they cannot be sent to a group or one-on-one chats. Even if a user tries to send a new status update to his/her contacts, it won’t work. Also sending a message to a broadcast list is also not possible currently. Creating a new WhatsApp account for the user is not working. Updating or switching the contact number feature is also not working.
Updating the user’s privacy settings such as last seen status, profile photos, and read receipts is not possible.
Meta has confirmed the down and released the statement:
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.
Meanwhile, WhatsApp users have gone crazy and started sharing memes across multiple social media websites including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
