WhatsApp has gone down for users across the world in a ‘global outage’.

Downdetector.co.uk recorded more than 68,000 reports about the messaging app between 8.45pm and 9.15pm.

Mobile and web customers say the app is not ‘connecting’ when they try to send messages.

Some 88% of the problems reported on downdetector are connection-related.

The spike in reports took place shortly after 8.30pm.

Users have been affected all over the world, including vast swathes of Europe, the US, southern and central America, India and Australia.

WhatsApp is now trending on Twitter, with more than 321,000 tweets about the outage.

Twitter users have shared funny memes expressing their shock at the outage alongside the hashtag #whatsappdown.

The service also went down last month, when thousands of users reported issues.

According to independent monitor Down Detector, a huge spike of problems was recorded shortly before 5pm.

The majority of these are around the last seen feature, while 24% said they are having connection problems.
