Since midnight (local time) WHATSAPP has been down across Africa and other parts of the world including Europe and Brazil with thousands unable to access popular messaging service.
There’s currently no word on when things will get back to normal. WhatsApp users worldwide are continuing to face connection issues, with the popular app still not working for many people.
There is currently no ETA on when WhatsApp will be back online, however, the support team have provided a short update on the situation.
“WhatsApp is aware of the issue and working to fix it as soon as possible,” a spokesperson told Engadget. While information is still scarce, WhatsApp users around the globe are reporting that the popular messenging app does appear to be coming back online, although it’s unclear just how long it will take for all servers to do the same. More updates to follow.
