On Tuesday, WhatsApp, the messaging program owned by Facebook’s parent company Meta, experienced a global outage.

According to Downdetector.com, which monitors outages across internet services, problems were identified for the first time around 3:17 a.m. ET.

Users have reported difficulties sending and receiving messages. Approximately 5 a.m. ET, WhatsApp service appears to have been restored to normal.

“We’re aware that people had problems sending WhatsApp messages today. The issue has been resolved, and we apologize for any inconvenience,” a spokeswoman for Meta told Bitfinsider.

Bitfinsider successfully loaded WhatsApp Web, the internet browser version of the messaging service, which had previously refused to load.

Tuesday morning, Meta confirmed there were issues with WhatsApp.

A spokeswoman for Meta stated, “We are aware that some users are experiencing difficulties sending messages, and we are striving to restore WhatsApp for everyone as soon as possible.”

WhatsApp, which has around 2 billion users, is especially popular in India and Brazil.

Tuesday, users from the United Kingdom to India and Turkey experienced problems.

This is not the first incident involving a Meta-owned platform this year. In August, Facebook users experienced an issue in which their News Feed was flooded with messages that originated from celebrity sites.

This year, additional technology companies have encountered technical issues. In August, Google’s search engine was temporarily unavailable. And Twitter experienced an outage in July.
