WHATSAPP is down this morning with people unable to send or receive messages.
Thousands of users of the Meta-owned instant messaging app have reported problems on social media. The app appears to say ‘connecting’ when trying to send a message.
According to the service status website Down Detector, users began reporting issues with WhatsApp just before 8am on Tuesday morning, with more than 12,000 reports posted by 8.30am.
WhatsApp is one of the most popular messaging platforms in the UK and around the world, and is estimated to have more than two billion active users globally.
