WhatsApp down! Users facing problems in sending, receiving messages

WhatsApp seems to be facing a glitch as a number of users are reporting issues with sending and receiving texts on the app. Downdetector, a website that tracks online outages across the globe, has shown a sharp spike in the number of users reporting WhatsApp’s outage.

WhatsApp down! Users facing problems in sending, receiving messages

Downdetector is reporting a major spike with over the 6000 reports online. Users are complaining that their messages are not getting delivered. Even when the messages are delivered, the app fails to highlight the delivery status.

This is a developing story

WhatsApp, the popular instant communication app owned by Meta that is used by many for quick texting is reportedly facing an issue. WhatsApp users in India are currently unable to send and receive messages.

IndianInQ8.com can confirm that the outage is affecting both personal chats as well as group chats. It currently seems impossible to send a message on WhatsApp groups, but personal chats also seem to be largely affected.

Outage detection website DownDetector confirms that WhatsApp is not working for thousands of users. Affected regions based on the website’s heat-map include major cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata and Lucknow, but we fear the outage is affecting users everywhere.

WhatsApp Web also appears to be affected by the outage, and we can confirm that app’s web client is simply not connecting anymore. Anyone trying to use WhatsApp Web will be greeted to an error message like the one seen below.

WhatsApp is yet to share an official statement on the same, but we should have more information soon enough. Stay tuned for more updates.

This story is being developed.
