WhatsApp is down for users in India and around the globe

Popular messaging app WhatsApp has been hit a major outage disabling 1 billion daily users around the world from using it.

"What's happening? Can't connect even though I have perfectly working wifi #WhatsAppDown", tweets one user.

However, users reported several other affected countries including Malaysia, UK, USA, India, Saudi Arabia, Philippines and Germany. The sudden outage on Whatsapp created a lot of panic among users because each region couldn't deduce as to why the service is not working as intended.

We shall keep you posted about the updates on the WhatsApp outage.

Facebook had commented on the cause of the outage by the time of going to press. In India alone, the number of smartphone users who utilize the service of this app adds up to more than 200 million monthly active users.

Indeed, people were unable to send or receive messages, and it is reported in various media outlets that the issue was down to a "server problem". The app in May had experienced downtime of a few hours - a longer outage than today's.

However, this was not WhatsApp's first global outage this year.

The Facebook-owned service confirms messages that have been successfully deleted for everyone will be replaced with "This message was deleted" in your recipients' chats.
