WhatsApp is experiencing outages with connecting to the server for some users


Some users are experiencing issues when using WhatsApp, as the app is unable to connect to the server. It seems this is not due to a broken update and it is not limited to a certain platform. What’s happening?



WhatsApp is experiencing an outage for some users so it is not possible to connect to the service and use some features since the server is down. It seems it is not a worldwide outage since only certain users are currently experiencing issues, but it seems a lot of users are unable to connect to WhatsApp Web. The extent of the outage and the number of users affected is not currently known. At this time, it is unclear what is causing the current outage: the company has not released any official statements or provided information regarding the reasons behind the issue.
