After Tuesday's global outage, India's IT Ministry has asked Meta-owned WhatsApp to share reasons behind this fact.
Around 10 a.m. Tuesday users in the UAE started experiencing troubles with WhatsApp, as the app could not connect to the network and was constantly showing "Connecting" sign above the chats. Those in the UAE were not alone - WhatsApp went down around the globe, and so did many businesses based on the app.
Now, India took the lead in demanding report from the app on the reason for this catastrophic outage. In a late night statement on Tuesday, WhatsApp said a "technical error" caused the outage.
The brief outage was a result of a technical error on our part and has now been resolved,
a Meta company spokesperson said that day.
According to Downdetector, which tracks outage reports, the messaging app was not working for many users across multiple regions on Tuesday afternoon. At one point during the outage on Tuesday, over 29,000 reports were flagged by users.
