Facebook-owned messaging app WhatsApp went down for nearly an hour on Friday afternoon with users unable to access it across India, UK and the world, media reports said.
Reports said the messaging app was experiencing server problems.
Indian users also experienced problems in sending messages.
Several users complained about messages getting blocked.
The app is now back in action.
“Earlier today, WhatsApp users globally had trouble accessing the app for about an hour. This issue has been fixed and we apologise for the inconvenience," WhatsApp said in a statement.
