GADGETS 360 – If you are wondering whether WhatsApp is down or you are facing issues connecting to your favourite messaging service, you are not alone. Several users across the world are reporting issues connecting to WhatsAp on New Year’s Eve, and the Facebook-owned service has acknowledged the issue.
“Some people have had trouble accessing WhatsApp for a short period today. We’re working to restore service back to 100% for everyone and we apologise for the inconvenience,” a WhatsApp spokesperson told Gadgets 360 in a statement.
Earlier, many users took to Twitter to complaint that WhatsApp is down, while others reported connectivity issues. The messaging and voice calling client seemed to be having issues sending and receiving messages on both Android and iOS. Gadgets 360 was able to independently confirm the issue. DownDetector, a realtime services outage monitor, also reported multiple issues.
