Popular IM platform, WhatsApp has just gone offline right now.

Whatsapp down, millions of people around the world facing problem while sending, receiving and deleting messages.

According to DownDetector, there were problems across Europe although users in India, Pakistan, Singapore and Iraq also reported that they could not access the service. Disbelief morphed into extreme mirth as social media exploded in jokes, mostly at WhatsApp's expense. This feature has been rolling out to all smartphones using WhatsApp.

The outage may be an embarrassment for WhatsApp's parent, Facebook, which has this week announced record revenues from advertising. The outage lasted for a few hours in some parts of the world. The magazine quoted a WhatsApp spokesperson saying, "We are aware of the issue and working to resolve it". The service began functioning again some regions around 30 minutes after the first complaints began popping up, Reuters had noted. Earlier in May, WhatsApp suffered a major outage. These new features are only increasing people's reliability on WhatsApp.

The Facebook-owned service confirms messages that have been successfully deleted for everyone will be replaced with "This message was deleted" in your recipients' chats.
