WhatsApp is DOWN as New Year revellers turn to other social media to vent frustrations they can’t message friends
WhatsApp is down for millions of users around the world, causing panic for New Year’s revellers trying to make plans and wish their friends a prosperous 2018.
The website DownDetector.co.uk reported a spike in outage reports around 6pm UK time.
Users across the UK and in countries including Barbados, India, Japan, Panama, South Africa, Spain, and Qatar said they were unable to connect to the app.
One user wrote: “Messages won’t deliver. Can’t see when people have been online. This is my lifeline for my new year plans. I’ve had to go old school and text and ring people.”
The cause of the global outage was unclear, with no comment yet from WhatsApp or its owner Facebook.
