Banned 2.9 MN Accounts In Jan To Combat Abuse: WhatsApp

WhatsApp seemed to be partially restored in India and Android and iOS users were able to send and receive messages on the popular instant communication app that went down for almost two hours on Tuesday.

Users of the Meta-owned instant messaging and voice call platform had reported that they were unable to send group as well as personal chats during the outage. Users of WhatsApp web were also affected in the outage.
Meta had earlier acknowledged the disruption and said it was working to fix the outage.

“We’re aware that some people are currently having trouble sending messages and we’re working to restore WhatsApp for everyone as quickly as possible,” a Meta spokesperson said.

Several other countries have also reported the issue with WhatsApp, according to trackers.

According to DownDetector, a website that reports on outages and other problems, many users reported issues in using WhatsApp since 3:17 AM EDT (12:30 pm IST) as per the DownDetector tracker.

Affected regions based on Downdetector’s heat map include major cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Bengaluru, Chennai, and Hyderabad as well as Nagpur and Lucknow among others.

After services were restored users headed to Twitter to share. Check out some of the reactions here:

One user shared an image from a scene of ‘Peaky Blinders’, a gangster drama web series.

Another user could not contain their happiness as they posted a series of dancing emoticons.

Some users also heaved a sigh of relief, through pictures like this one.

According to Downdetector, 70 percent of WhatsApp users reported issues in sending messages, while 24 percent had issues with server connection and 7 percent said they were facing app issues.

On October 5, 2021, Instagram, WhatsApp, and Facebook stopped working for over six hours. It took over six hours for Facebook to resolve the issue that the company claimed arose due to a faulty configuration change. The WhatsApp outage affected an estimated 3.5 billion users across the globe. (ANI)
