Messaging app WhatsApp was down for users in India for a short while as users were not able to send or receive messages. It is unclear if the service suffered outage in other parts of the world as well. People have taken to Twitter to complain about problems with the messaging service. The Facebook-owned company was down globally early September as well, with users reporting problems accessing the app. In May, WhatsApp was down for a few hours in all parts of the world including Malaysia to Spain, Germany and some other European countries. Severely affected countries included Belgium, the Netherlands, and Britain.
