WhatsApp on Sunday evening faced a global outage in India and other parts of the world. Services resumed after roughly three hours of an outage.
WhatsApp users reported they were unable to share multimedia including photos, videos, GIFs, and stickers on the instant messaging platform. WhatsApp’s Status was also not functioning properly as users were unable to view contacts’ videos and photos in the section.
According to downdetector, there was a big spike in reports of an outage around 4.15pm on Sunday. The tracking website says most of the users were facing issues with sending or receiving messages. A lot of users also reported facing issues with the connection. A live outage map shows users in India, Europe, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Brazil were affected by the outage.
As expected, users took to Twitter to share the ordeal. Whatsappdown is also trending on Twitter India at the moment.
