WhatsApp services went for a blackout in the UAE, users report

WhatsApp users in the United Arab Emirates and around the world reported a widespread outage early Friday morning.

As of 12:55 a.m., more than 900 complaints had been made by users who were experiencing problems. However, WhatsApp users in other parts of the world reported far more problems, with the website recording nearly tens of thousands of complaints for the same time period – particularly from users in Europe. About 40,000 users had reported that WhatsApp was not functioning for them. The Downdetector website also reported huge surge in reports.

In a brief statement posted to Twitter not long after, the messaging app acknowledged the issue. “You may be experiencing some issues using WhatsApp at the moment. We’re aware and working to get things running smoothly again. We’ll keep you updated and in the meantime, thanks for your patience.”

A short time later, the service issued a statement saying that everything was back to normal. “And we’re back. Happy chatting!! “Without elaboration, it stated.

This isn’t the first time the service has encountered global technical difficulties.. Last year, a six-hour outage of the social messaging service paralyzed the social media platform. As the internet rule of law many Twitter users flooded the platform with questions and memes.
