The website DownDetector.co.uk reported a spike in outage reports around 6 pm UK time.

Users across the UK and in other countries including Barbados, India, Panama, South Africa, Spain, and Qatar said they were unable to connect to the app.

WhatsApp has neither confirmed nor denied the outage issue. WhatsApp official Twitter hasn't provided any details yet, though the hashtag 'WhatsApp down' is currently the trending topic on the social media platform.

WhatsApp is used by more than a billion people around the world and is the second most popular messaging app available (after Facebook Messenger).
