We have been moving for a few days in terms of falls in popular services. If a couple of days ago there was an Outlook (the old hotmail) that gave problems to its users, now it is the turn of the most popular messaging app. Since a few minutes, WhatsApp has started to fail, and its case has been blocked both in Twitter and in measurement tools such as DownDetector. The problem seems to affect both the connection when opening the app or using WhatsApp Web and sending and receiving messages. Moreover, everything indicates that it is not an exclusive case of Spain, because they are also detecting problems in other areas such as the United Kingdom.

The fact is that it is not the first False case to witness whatsapp in recent weeks. Earlier this month, the service suffered several hours and left many users could not include the app. In this case, the problems worsen when you uninstall the app and try again to register the phone number with an error message that is constantly repeated.
According to the life map of downtime detector failures, the problems of the service are quite spread between Spain, Mexico, Ecuador, Argentina and even Brazil. We must report that one has passed in Spain, which would explain that there are not many users reporting problems in the peninsula.
Commenting on the community: # WhatsApp Is down ? weird that messages can be sent and not audios …. Those who defend the audios should be happy ?

Twitter users have also started to react to the app attacks. Some indicate that the service does not work right, but there are others who explain that the problems come when sending audios instead of articles. Would it take an hour for the problem to be fixed or will be faster to set the service to work for all users?
