WHATSAPP DOWN: MESSAGING APP NOT WORKING FOR USERS ACROSS WORLD
WhatsApp has gone down, leaving its millions of users without the ability to send or receive messages.
Thousands of WhatsApp users across the globe have reported that the messaging app has stopped working.
First it looked like network issue, but now its obvious its from the company.
Tracing website Down Detector showed what appeared to be a global outage on Tuesday evening, as the messaging app appeared to have broken.
Unlike other Facebook-owned apps, WhatsApp does not operate a status page to update users and developers on any problems with its service, meaning there is no easy way to know whether the company is aware of the outage of how widespread it might be.

The company does have a devoted Twitter account – under the name of WhatsApp Status – but it has not been used since 2014.
WhatsApp Messenger, or simply WhatsApp, is an American freeware, cross-platform messaging and Voice over IP service owned by Facebook, Inc. It allows users to send text messages and voice messages, make voice and video calls, and share images, documents, user locations, and other media.
