Is WhatsApp down? Here’s what you need to know about issues, outages, and errors.

WhatsApp, the social media giant, was one of several apps that had issues on Friday, November 19, 2021.

Facebook and Instagram were also down for several hours, preventing millions of users from accessing their accounts.

WhatsApp and other apps such as Instagram and Facebook began experiencing issues around 11:45 a.m. EST on Friday, November 19, 2021.

When attempting to run WhatsApp and Instagram on their mobile devices alongside a dozen other apps, users reported technical issues.

Sent texts had a clock icon next to them, indicating that they had not been dispatched, indicating that they had not been delivered.

Those who tried to open the sites on their desktops were reportedly met with a black white page with the message “500 server error.”

Hundreds of thousands of people reported problems with social networking apps on Twitter and DownDetector, a competitor website.

What caused the outages is still unknown.

Following the outage, it was reported that Mark Zuckerberg, the owner of the Facebook platform through which WhatsApp and Instagram operate, lost a total of (dollar)7 billion as a result of the problems.

Those who are having problems with WhatsApp can look for reports on rival Twitter or other social media apps.

If you don’t have a Twitter account, Down Detector will alert you when your favorite apps are down or having problems.

If the issue appears to be isolated, check your device’s internet connection or exit the app before re-entering.

WhatsApp first appeared on our screens in February 2009, and by 2021, it will have a monthly active user base of two billion people.

Individual outages are common on Facebook and Instagram, but the apps rarely go down all at once.

They run on a shared infrastructure, which means that other Facebook services, such as the Oculus website and Facebook Workplace, will experience server issues.
