Did You Know? : Whatsapp Disrupted Due to Technical Glitch

A technical glitch meant that WhatsApp users across Europe, the US and Canada were having trouble using the messaging app as people got ready to see in 2016. Users could not respond to existing chats, share new ones or use the app's web service on one of the busiest days of the year.

The service went down at 16.28 GMT on Thursday 31 December, was working again 45 minutes only to crash again. When an existing chat was opened the name of the person or group was replaced with a spinning wheel and the word "connecting".
