WhatsApp, owned by Meta Platforms, experienced problems on Wednesday, with tens of thousands of users reporting outages. The issue was resolved more than three hours later when WhatsApp announced that they were back up and running. During the outage, over 24,000 users in the United States were affected. In India, nearly 46,000 users have reported issues, with around 82,000 users in the United Kingdom and over 88,000 users in Brazil also experiencing issues. In addition to WhatsApp’s problems, over 5,000 Instagram outages were recorded during the same time period.

This is not the first time that apps owned by Meta Platforms have experienced outages. Last month Facebook suffered an outage along with Instagram and Threads that affected hundreds of thousands of users. Meta Platforms reported that during the fourth quarter of 23 nearly 4 billion people used at least one of its core products each month including Facebook WhatsApp Instagram or Messenger.
