WhatsApp suffers an outage due to server issues

Posted by iwgcr

WhatsApp experienced an outage for around 210 minutes on February 22 from 11am to 2:30 pm PST. Users around the world reported that they were unable to send messages, and WhatsApp confirmed these problems at 12:16pm PST with a tweet stating “sorry we currently experiencing server issues. We hope to be back up and recovered shortly.”

WhatsApp started to work again for some users at 2:30pm PST after around 150 to 210 minutes of downtime. Some users reported that “last seen” stamps vanished from their conversations when WhatsApp first came back online, but now some say they’re appearing again.

At 2:48pm PST, WhatsApp confirmed it was back up with this tweet:

“WhatsApp service has been restored. We are so sorry for the downtime…”

Around the same time, WhatsApp CEO Jan Koum apparently told the Wall Street Journalvia email that “we had a server outage, should be OK now.”
