Users of WhatsApp have tweeted that one of the world’s most popular instant messaging apps has not been working for some time now. Some Instagram and Facebook Messenger users also reported that the apps were down.
No messages were getting delivered on WhatsApp and Messenger, users tweeted, while no content could be loaded on the photo- and video-sharing app Instagram.
The official account of WhatsApp on Twitter has not posted any message on the issue yet.
All the three apps are owned by Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook Inc.
