WhatsApp instantly stopped working last night and wasn’t available for approximately 2 to 3 hours. This wasn’t the first time when the online instant messaging app stopped working and to solve the issue, you either restarted your smart device or reinstalled the app. There have been numerous occasions in the past where Whatsapp went down, unannounced and people were left in a turmoil.
While the Facebook-owned application has made no comment why this happened, many tech experts state that it was a worldwide update for improvement.
“Earlier today, WhatsApp users in all parts of the world were unable to access WhatsApp for a few hours. We have now fixed the issue and apologize for the inconvenience.” – said the spokesperson in charge.
How Pakistanis reacted to the application’s sudden absence was genuinely hilarious!

Didn’t notice about whatsapp. Coz PTCL BB was down.

I am sure this guy wasn’t the only one who thought it was PTCL which stopped working. This is probably what an average PTCL user thinks when their applications stop working…
Maybe WhatsApp is also doing the same that SnapChat did, they are also closing their services from India.#WhatsAppDown

There were many who didn’t notice when the app went down, but those who did were in their panic mood. Yesterday morning, WhatsApp also announced how the WhatsApp status story has more users than Snapchat users.
While many were seen in an outrage, us, forever alone people were just enjoying, seeing people panic. 😉
