Just-in: Whatsapp is finally back as eelier reports had earlier on reported the global shut down. The app got back online as of 12:00 EAT.

Whatsapp is down as of today, October 25 2022 as the green app is not working right now, let’s sort out what’s wrong with Whatsapp and why it’s inaccessible 10/25/2022. 

The WhatsApp inaccessibility is been reported is down in a major outage affecting the communications as the service started experiencing issues at around 3AM ET, with users greeted with a “connecting” message. 

If you’re attempting to use WhatsApp web, you’ll see a “Make sure your computer has an active internet connection” error. 

However according to Merck Zuckerberg, the current CEO of Meta, he officially communicated through the spoke person;

“We’re aware that some people are currently having trouble sending messages and we’re working to restore WhatsApp for everyone as quickly as possible,” says Meta spokesperson Joshua Breckman in a statement to The Verge.

This is the first major WhatsApp outage since the service went down as part of a massive outage that also took down Instagram, Messenger, Oculus, and Facebook last year. That outage took nearly six hours before it was resolved and WhatsApp was back online. 

Meta, known as Facebook at the time, said that major outage was due to a configuration change to its routers. Instagram, Messenger, and Facebook are all functioning fine right now — it’s only WhatsApp that’s down.

WhatsApp outages are still relatively rare, but they have major implications for communications worldwide as the service is used by more than two billion people each month. When WhatsApp went down last year, Brazilian workers’ jobs went with it.


While Whatsapp has not yet made a statement about the problem, the problem is expected to be resolved in the coming hours. 

However there has been a report of server crush hence preventing the switch servers to send bulk of trillions of messages held stuck at the moment.
