WhatsApp is currently experiencing global disruption as users cannot send or receive messages.
The world’s most popular messaging platform stopped working on Tuesday morning, affecting its over two billion monthly active users.
A Meta spokesperson said the company was working to restore services “as quickly as possible.”
“We’re aware that some people are currently having trouble sending messages and we’re working to restore WhatsApp for everyone as quickly as possible,” the spokesperson said, as quoted by Reuters.
A website that tracks online outages across the globe, Downdetector, recorded a sharp spike in the number of users reporting WhatsApp’s outage.
