It is worth mentioning here that a few days back, Instagram, Facebook and WhatsApp faced a global outage. The users around the world were unable to use the apps for almost an hour. WhatsApp tweeted that the service went down globally for 45 minutes. The company also confirmed that the service outage was due to technical reasons, but did not reveal the exact issue.
We exactly do not know the reason of this outage now. Neither the company has revealed any information regarding it. It only tweeted that the service is back and the users need to restart the app.
Update: this has been resolved but you may need to restart your app for it to work. Sorry for any inconvenience. https://t.co/F1Ga9ET4Ch
