Cross Platform Mobile Messaging with friends all over the world, WatsApp went down for few hours on Wednesday, affecting millions of users across the globe.The massively popular app refused to properly start up for some users, leaving them stuck with a ‘Connecting…’ message.
After two hours, Facebook – which owns the app – announced that the mobile chat program was back up and running, but it didn’t say what caused the problem.
‘WatsApp users in all parts of the world were unable to access WhatsApp for a few hours,’ a spokesperson said on Thursday morning.
‘We have now fixed the issue and apologize for the inconvenience.’ No further information was provided.Nigeria was among the countries affected, although most of the incidents appeared to be in the UK and Europe.
The incident occurred the same day that the app announced there were more people using its clone of Snapchat’s Stories function than were using SnapChat itself.
