MESSAGING service WhatsApp has crashed this evening and angered millions of users across the world.
Users have flagged the issue on Twitter with the hashtag #WhatsAppDown.
Downdetector.co.uk shows the issue has spread across the globe, with users in the UK and Europe worst off.
One wrote: “Messages won’t deliver. Can’t see when people have been online. This is my lifeline for my New Year plans. I’ve had to go old school and text and ring people.”
Another added: “Not working for me in the UK. Refusing to connect with wi fi or 4G.”
According to Down Detector’s outage map the app is mainly down for people in northern Europe, as well as for some users in Spain, India, Malaysia, New York and Brazil.
