The instant messaging application WhatsApp, which belongs to the Meta group (also owner of Facebook), suffered a worldwide outage on Tuesday morning, from 9:02 a.m. (Paris time) to around 10:45 a.m., as reported by the specialized site DownDetector.
All WhatsApp services were affected: it was impossible to send messages, either from the application or the website.
The Meta group confirmed the outage, before ensuring that it was working to restore service “as quickly as possible”. “We are aware that some people are currently having difficulty sending messages and we are working to restore Whatsapp for everyone as quickly as possible,” said a spokesperson for the American group.

On Twitter, many users shared their disappointment when logging into the application, some even explaining that the time was long with this outage.
