WhatsApp is DOWN

WhatsApp is DOWN

According to many user reports, it seems that WhatsApp is experiencing outages. Reports state that the problem seems to be of connecting to the messaging platform and the inability to send messages although still connected. Starting yesterday, 28th April 2022, users have been continuously describing how they cannot connect to WhatsApp’s servers, with the application displaying a constant “connecting” message. Others also stated that they can no longer send any messages although their application is still connected to the messaging platform’s servers. According to tests, the desktop and mobile apps are still working which hints at the outage being localized and not affecting the company’s services worldwide.

Outage site DownDetector states thousands of user reports that started streaming in around 4:15 PM EST on the 28th of April 2022, with affected WhatsApp users reporting the same issues from Europe, North and South America, and Asia. The company has released a statement on Twitter, addressing the outage and saying that their engineers are working on mitigating the ongoing problems. “You may be experiencing some issues using WhatsApp at the moment,” WhatsApp tweeted earlier today. “We’re aware and working to get things running smoothly again. We’ll keep you updated and in the meantime, thanks for your patience.”\

In early October, WhatsApp experienced a five-hour-long worldwide outage together with Facebook and Instagram following a BGP routing issue. Facebook later revealed that the outage was caused by faulty configuration changes made to some of its backbone routers that brought all services to a halt. Finally, the company was able to mitigate the problem on the day itself and users should be able to use the app without any interruptions.
