NEW DELHI: Meta-owned WhatsApp is currently facing a global outage, including in India, as multiple users reported that they cannot access the messaging service or get a single tick even for delivered messages.

According to Down Detector, over 85 per cent of people reported problems while messaging, 11 per cent while using the app, and 3 per cent while using the website.

In India, the affected cities include Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata and Lucknow, but users from the US, Germany, South Africa, Bahrain, Bangladesh and several other countries also complained on the platform that the service is currently creating a disturbance and not working smoothly.

Users in India also faced trouble while sending images and videos.

People took to Twitter to report their problems with Facebook family apps, including posting memes and GIFs.

"Today online, one tick for both deliver and read messages. Is WhatsApp down? #WhatsApp #whatsappdown," a user wrote on Twitter.

"WhatsApp is down in many countries, including Pakistan," another user wrote.

Meanwhile, the platform hasn't shared any official statement on the matter.

Early this month, Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram and Messenger went down for millions of users, including in India, as they were unable to send or receive messages on social media platforms.
