WhatsApp started around 3:00 and there was a problem with group messaging and one-to-one communication was also affected. The program keeps showing “connecting” and fails to send any messages or images. As of the time of writing this article (4:30), the service has not returned to normal.
So far, only WhatsApp has been affected by Meta, other social platforms such as Facebook and Instagram remain normal, and Facebook Messenger can still send messages normally.
Meta said it had noticed users failing to send messages, and “we are working hard to restore WhatsApp services for everyone as soon as possible.”
