WhatsApp, the popular instant communication app owned by Meta that is used by many for quick texting is reportedly facing an issue. WhatsApp users in India are currently unable to send and receive messages.
Naijmobile.com can confirm that the outage is affecting both personal chats as well as group chats. It currently seems impossible to send a message on WhatsApp groups, but personal chats also seem to be largely affected.
WhatsApp Web also appears to be affected by the outage, and we can confirm that app’s web client is simply not connecting anymore.
WhatsApp’s parent company Meta has acknowledged the outage and is currently working on a fix.
While WhatsApp isn’t working for most people, you can still send photos and videos using Facebook Messenger or text on regular texts (if you have data). You can also use Telegram to send messages to friends.
