Definitely when Facebook’s messaging service goes down it’s chaos. Now WhatsApp is doing its thing again.
Once again, WhatsApp encrypted messaging seems to have had bugs since Tuesday, October 25, 2022. Like the big outage of 2021, the application is spinning in a vacuum and categorically refuses to load messages. It was enough for Twitter and other networks to ignite for lack of transparency on the part of Facebook. Because yes, for the moment no communication is made on this subject.
whatsapp stop responding
As you can see on DownDetector which provides users with real-time information on the status of various websites and services, since 8:00 a.m. this morning reports of outages have been extremely numerous with a large spike between 9:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. (French time).
The same thing is happening on the English version of the site with thousands of reports. The breakdown is therefore truly global. But unlike the big outage of 2021 which also happened in October, this time the other two applications of the Meta group, Instagram and Facebook are still alive. Only WhatsApp is therefore in the cabbage for the moment.
On Twitter France, the subject WhatsApp is at the heart of discussions with no less than 725,000 tweets on this subject. It only remains to wait for Meta to officially communicate on this subject to know the reasons (or not) for this stoppage of services.
