WhatsApp has gone down for users in Nigeria and across the globe, with thousands of people if not millions reporting being unable to send or receive messages.

WhatsApp users from around the world have taken to social media platforms, such as Twitter, to complain that the app is not working.

Downdetector also found more than 11,000 users in India, and 19,000 in Singapore, had reported experiencing issues.

Users have found that while they can open the app and access their conversations, it is failing to deliver new messages or successfully send any.

A persistent message is showing for many users at the top of the app, saying it is “connecting” to the server, but then appears to fail to do so.


“We’re aware that some people are currently having trouble sending messages, and we’re working to restore WhatsApp for everyone as quickly as possible,” a spokesperson for the platform’s parent company, Meta, said.

WhatsApp is one of the most popular messaging platforms in Nigeria and around the world, and is estimated to have more than two billion active users globally
