WhatsApp down for more than an hour


No, its not just you.  WhatsApp appears to be down for everyone, from around 19:00 GMT.

Of course the first conclusion one might jump to is that Facebook messed it up, but given that that deal is still months from closing it is more likely one of their engineers flipped the wrong switch.

Interestingly there has so far been no official response on their website, blog or twitter account.

The service is usually very reliable, so I am sure it will be restored soon.

Update 1:

WhatsApp’s Status Twitter account has now posted an update, saying:

Update 2: 4 hours later and WhatsApp has confirmed the service is back in action again.
