The mobile messaging application reportedly began experiencing issues with its service in parts of Europe after it went down shortly after 4.30pm.

There was no news of the outage on the company’s official Twitter accounts or Facebook page but a WhatsApp spokesperson confirmed to Reuters there had been issues with the service but work was being done to restore services.

The spokesperson said: “Some people have had trouble accessing WhatsApp for a short period today, we’re working to restore service back to 100% for everyone.”

Hours after the outage began WhatsApp users were still posting on Twitter to complain of the service being down.
