Whatsapp Users Stranded As Application Suffers Service Outage

WhatsApp confirmed the issue saying

They didn’t clarify on what caused the glitch, but they reassured that it had been fixed.
WhatsApp rarely experiences major glitches that affect all its users on a global scale.
The last major glitch took place more than a year ago and it affected not only WhatsApp but Instagram and Facebook as well as the 3 applications are all owned by Facebook.
The previous service outage lasted for 2 hours but managed to be restored.
Lately, some WhatsApp users in some countries have also been complaining about connection issues within the application
These areas include, the US, parts of South America, parts of Central America, Australia, India and several European countries.
Some of the WhatsApp users have complained that the the application is not refreshing new messages and remains stuck on the connecting screen.

WhatsApp will soon make adding contacts easier than ever using the QR Code. Users will just scan their desired contact’s code to add them to their contacts instead of adding them digit by boring digit.
WhatsApp Dark Mode can now be used on the WhatsApp desktop as well.
WhatsApp users can also video call up to 8 people at once and users can choose to focus on one person they want to see the most by tapping on their face and holding to get a full screen.
