Bhubaneswar: Meta-owned WhatsApp went down on Tuesday across the globe, including several parts of the country, as multiple users reported they cannot access the messaging service or get a single tick even for delivered messages.
According to Down Detector, over 85 percent of people reported problems while messaging, 11 percent while using the app, and 3 per cent while using the website.
“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,” said a spokesperson of Meta.
In India, the affected cities include Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, and Lucknow, but users from the US, Germany, South Africa, Bahrain, Bangladesh and several other countries also complained on the platform that the service is currently creating a disturbance and not working smoothly.
Users in India also faced trouble while sending images and videos.
People took to Twitter to report their problems with Facebook family apps, including posting memes and GIFs.
