BENGALURU, Oct 25 (Reuters) – Popular messaging app WhatsApp was slowly coming back online by 0900 GMT on Tuesday, with some users inn a number of countries, including Malta were saying they were able to send and receive some messages and videos.

Popular messaging app WhatsApp has stopped working for many users across the world, with users across India, the United Kingdom, South Africa, Asia and other parts of Europe, including Malta, reporting issues with sending and receiving texts and videos.

“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,” a spokesperson for WhatsApp parent company Meta Platforms META.O said on Monday.

Downdetector said more than 11,000 users across India had reported an outage, while the numbers for United Kingdom were at 68,000 and 19,000 for Singapore as of about 0750 GMT.

Downdetector tracks outages by collating status reports from a number of sources including user-submitted errors on its platform. The outage may have affected a larger number of users.
