WhatsApp outage in India: App, desktop users reporting issues including failure to send messages and more
WhatsApp is down, messages are not being delivered to recipients

WhatsApp is facing issues with its message delivery. India that serves as one of the biggest userbases of the app on Tuesday woke up to a broken WhatsApp. The chat app is failing to deliver messages to the recipients especially in group chats. The issue is seen for both mobile and desktop versions of the app.

The app outage has spawned a meme fest on Twitter. The annoyed users have expressed their frustration through memes on the microblogging platform that is seen flooded with tweets on the issue. While chatting many users are seeing the clock icon on their message indicating that the message is not delivered yet. In some cases, users can see the recipient online but the sent message has just one tick meaning it hasn’t been delivered to that recipient.

An ANI report has quoted a Meta spokesperson saying that the company is aware of the issue and is currently working on to fix it at the earliest.

Users on both Android and iOS are seen facing the issue. According to DownDetector, a website that keeps a track of updates when an app is down and other related problems, the app started facing issues since 3:37 AM. The heatmap shows Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Nagpur, and Chennai as some of the major cities hit by the outage.

The affected users have taken it to Twitter to report the issue. “Whatsapp has gone down right at the start of the work day,” wrote a WhatsApp user. Here are some of the memes posted on Twitter.
