At around 9:38 p.m. on Thursday, almost 30,000 users reported that WhatsApp was not working for them.

Some users reported that the app was down and some said they were having problems with their server connection and sending messages.

Users reported issues with the social networking app on Twitter and DownDetector.

It’s not immediately clear what caused the problem.

One Twitter user wrote: “Ohh I thought it was our internet connection.

Another added, “Probably explains why my video calls dropped so often.”

And a third chimed in: “If you’ve come to Twitter to see if WhatsApp is down…then yes…it is!”

The Sun has reached out to WhatsApp for comment.

Other reports suggested that several countries also experienced the blackout.

Sister social network Facebook also appears to be suffering from some issues, with over 200 users reporting that it’s not working.

Those who may be struggling with WhatsApp can check other social media apps like Twitter for reports.

If the problem doesn’t seem widespread, try checking the internet connection on your device or exiting the app before logging back in.

WhatsApp first appeared on our screens in February 2009 and will have two billion monthly active users as of 2021.
