WhatsApp, Instagram and Facebook Messenger are all down.
Down Detector shows reports of all three services being down starting from around 5pm today (19 March).
According to reports, some users have reported receiving error messages. For example, Android users on Instagram have seen ‘5xx Server Error’ appear on their apps.
Some have also seen the message: “We’re sorry, but something went wrong. Please try again.”
WhatsApp users, however, have noticed that their messages are failing to send, with the little clock symbol left hanging.
While around 5,000 Facebook users reported issues with the site at 5.32pm.
As of yet, it’s unclear what is the problem with the apps, all three of which are owned by Facebook.
More to follow.
