Some people this evening logged into their WhatsApp account to find out to their  greatest shock to realize that they could not log in or do anything as usual.

Initially the situation started with the conversations not appearing to load, but new messages would refuse to send within those chats.

Some previous WhatsApp outages have been followed by problems at Facebook and Instagram, presumably because they share infrastructure. But those services appeared to continue working as normal.

As the problem continued to grow worldwide it looks like the issue is no longer affecting WhatsApp users in South Africa but also their entire users worth of over 2 Billion users worldwide are also complaining of the same problem.

According to a tweet posted by Pranav Degwekar it revealed that the WhatsApp problem has been finally resolved.

Problem has been solved. Now Whatsapp is working properly.
Retweet if Whatsapp is working in your region. (WhatsAppDown)

 

Similar situatuion happened in the wake of this year around Jan 19, 2020

WhatsApp users in various countries including South Africa reported a partial outage in the service on Sunday afternoon.

Users found it impossible to upload photos and videos, or voice no

The Facebook-owned company did not immediately respond to the outage, which rapidly trended on Twitter under the tag #whatsappdown.

According to Businessinsider.co.za revealed that eports of the problem have come in from the United Kingdom and Europe, India, the Middle East, and elsewhere.

After what appeared to be an initial total outage on media files for at least one hour, some users started to report the intermittent ability to send photos.

The WhatsApp glitch appeared entirely unconnected with broader problems South Africans have recently had connecting to the global internet due to breaks in undersea fibre optic cables, with bad weather holding back repairs.

Previous outages on WhatsApp, in mid-2019, appeared to be associated with US cybersecurity firm Cloudflare.

That outage – which also affected media files – lasted some 9 hours, and also affected Facebook, Messenger, and Instagram.

The company also had sever trouble in March 2019, which caused its apps to be unavailable or troublesome for more than eight hours.
