We are moving for a few days in terms of falling popular services. If a few days ago was Outlook (the old Hotmail) that gave the problems to its users, it is now the end of the most popular messaging application. From a few minutes WhatsApp began to fail and its decline is reflected in Twitter and in measurement tools like Downdetector. The problem seems to affect the connection when opening the application or using WhatsApp Web and when sending and receiving messages. In addition, everything suggests that this is not an exclusive decline in Spain, as they also reveal problems in other areas, such as the United Kingdom.

The fact is that it is not the first autumn suffered by WhatsApp in recent weeks. Earlier this month, the service also suffered problems over several hours and many of the users could not enter the application. In this case, the problems get worse when you uninstall the application and try to register the phone number again with a repeated error message.
According to live maps of downdetector failures, service problems are spreading widely between Spain, Mexico, Ecuador, Argentina and even Brazil. We must bear in mind that it was brought to Spain, which would explain that there are not so many users reporting on problems from the peninsula.
Community Reporting: #Whatsapp is down ? Strange that messages can be sent, not audio …. Those who hate audio-music should be happy ?

Twitter users also began to react to the failures of the application. Some suggest that the service does not work directly, but there are others who also explain that problems come when they send audio recordings instead of messages. Will it also take hours to solve the problem or will it be faster to put the service to work for all users?
