A WhatsApp outage preventing or greatly delaying the sending of messages affects a very large number of people.
Does WhatsApp no longer work on your smartphone? The problem is not with you, but with the instant messaging application owned by Meta (formerly Facebook). In fact, many people are reporting a breakdown in the service.
Some people complain that messages are no longer being sent. On our side, we also noticed that some messages were sent, but after a very long wait, whereas the sending is supposed to be almost instantaneous when you have a good connection.
WhatsApp outage reported massively
On DownDetector, the outage is felt. The site has more than 1500 reports of malfunctions.
Also on Twitter, many people are complaining that they can no longer use WhatsApp. The fact that the messages are written in various languages (in addition to French) tends to show that the problem concerns several countries.
Let’s remember in passing that WhatsApp has more than 2 billion users. An outage of the service is bound to have a major impact. Also on Twitter, the hashtag #WhatsApp has become a trend in France as there were many tweets about this outage.
