The Facebook-owned app went offline at around 6pm on Wednesday with thousands quickly taking to social media to discuss the outage. Several users in London told IBTimes UK that they were unable to use the app, and this reporter is also at the time of writing unable to send or receive messages. Also, as per few users, they were able to get back the normal service later the day. WhatsApp suffered a similar outage earlier this month with users across the world, including India, reporting that their WhatsApp stopped working for hours. There have also been a small number of complaints in NY and San Francisco. Other severely affected countries included Belgium, the Netherlands, and Britain, reported IANS.
