If you were hitting your modem hard and rebooting it again and again to connect your whats app then you’re mistaken. While I’m writing down this article, it has been almost more than 1 hour that WhatsApp is down. Yes, you’re not the only one who is having problem sending out and receiving messages or connecting to the server. The outage is GLOBAL.
Many users and friends started reporting to me that they were not able to send the messages. So, I went ahead to check it and interestingly, the news is true. When BGR tried to contact the company, they confirmed that they have acknowledged the problem and working on the solution. However, they didn’t mention any fixed timeline.
Update : The company has tweeted stating that the service is now back to normal. The tweet has been sent at around 4 o clock in the morning (IST) and that would make it a 4 hour long service outage.
WhatsApp service has been restored. We are so sorry for the downtime…

It appears to me that this could be due to the issue of server overloading. Or perhaps is there something new on Mark’s mind? Are they planning to bring some changes in the WhatsApp? Time will tell us the story but till now let’s get back to the Facebook messenger and try our luck there.
Meanwhile, Facebook has recently bought WhatsApp for whopping $16 billion and according to the unconfirmed sources, Google even tried to offer more. Well, Facebook was able to get this package worth billions of dollars and people are already shouting at them.
