WhatsApp users in India and across the world are reporting that they are experiencing problems sending texts or unable to log into the app.
It was gathered that in India, "Whatsappdown" was the top trending item on Twitter, which is WhatsApp's biggest market with about 200 million of its billion-plus users.
Downdetector.com said over a thousand of WhatsApp customers reported issues using the app and 60 per cent customers were having issue connecting to it.
When logged into Whatsapp, this message popped into the screens of the users.
People who were not able to send or receive messages using the Facebook-owned app, took to Twitter to complain about the lack of service. Earlier in May, WhatsApp faced a similar problem but unlike today the outage went for few hours (much longer than today). The magazine quoted a WhatsApp spokesperson saying, "We are aware of the issue and working to resolve it".
However, this was not WhatsApp's first global outage this year. In some regions, the problem was resolved in 30 minutes.
People magazine reported that WhatsApp server is down around the world.
