The world’s most popular messaging platform stopped working on Tuesday morning, affecting its over two billion monthly active users. While it was down, users were reportedly unable to send or receive messages.

Meta, which owns WhatsApp, said the problem had been fixed but did not give a reason for the disruption.


“We know people had trouble sending messages on WhatsApp today,” the statement said. “We have fixed the issue and apologise for any inconvenience.”

As of 8:30 am, there had been over 5,000 complaints that the messaging platform was experiencing downtime. Likewise, on Twitter, over 1.12million users have talked about the global disruption.
