Whatsapp crashed resulting in millions of users worldwide going into a frantic mood because their messages were not being sent.
With over 600 million users worldwide and being the biggest messaging service in the world, it was no surprise when users of the app took to social media to vent their fury; because they could not connect to the app earlier today.
A spokesperson for the company said that Whatsapp is aware of the problem is trying to fix it.
As raging WhatsApp users vent their frustrations some even jokingly labelled the incident the “End of days“.
Users of the messaging app attempting to send messages reported that the app was locked on the “connecting” screen.
Flurries of tweets were sent every second from different countries as people turn to other messaging services to flag the problem with Whatsapp.
Initially, when Whatsapp was launched, the instant messaging service was only available to smartphone users. However, in January, it was announced that the service will be available on a desktop computer too.
For those embarrassing messages that you wish you could unsend, Whatsapp technical team is reportedly working on a feature that could let users unsend embarrassing messages after they have been sent. As long as the double-blue tick was not showing, users could reportedly press and hold on a message to bring up the options to edit or revoke the message. Nevertheless, there is no stipulated date when that feature will be available to users.
The great news for users of the largest messaging service app is that the app is back to working conditions and users can go back to texting, video chat or call their friends and family.
