WhatsApp has broken; leaving people unable to send or receive texts through one of the world’s most popular messaging apps.
The problems were primarily focused in the UK and Western Europe. It wasn’t clear what caused the problems, which began shortly after 4.30PM UK time. The issues began just as the night of New Years Eve was beginning, for many around the world, likely being one of the busiest nights for the service. 900 million users across the globe use whatsapp and it sends 10 billion messages every day.
WhatsApp users voiced their frustrations with the inability to send and receive messages on Twitter.
