WhatsApp services restored after major outage
The app should soon begin functioning for users if it hasn’t already as WhatsApp services have been restored. WhatsApp is currently functional on WhatsApp Web, Android, and iOS apps. Although some users claim that services on WhatsApp Web are still not functioning, your phone app should be functional.
Many people use WhatsApp, a well-known messaging service owned by Meta, to send rapid texts, but earlier today, the programme experienced a significant outage that lasted for about two hours. This prevented millions of WhatsApp users from sending or receiving messages globally.
Both private and group chats were affected by the outage, according to Indianexpress.com. The outage monitoring service DownDetector revealed that numerous customers across various areas were experiencing problems with WhatsApp.
Many people use WhatsApp Web, the app’s web client, on their desktops and laptops, and its services were also affected by the outage. However, they have since been restored. Anyone attempting to use the client during the outage was presented with the following error.
Since the broader Meta outage on October 5 that affected millions of users over the course of many hours before the services were restored, this was WhatsApp’s first significant outage.
The parent company of WhatsApp, Meta, acknowledged the issue and announced earlier today that a fix was being developed. A Meta representative told indianexpress.com, “We’re aware that some users are now having problems sending messages, and we’re working to restore WhatsApp for everyone as quickly as possible.” The reason for the outage is yet unclear, but once Meta or WhatsApp release additional details, we should know more.
