The WhatsApp messaging service is back online after an outage affected thousands around the world on Wednesday.


It appeared the services went offline around 4 p.m EST on May 3 and came back after 6 p.m.

Outage report showed thousands of outages across the world, mostly in Brazil, the U.K and the U.S.

There were also reports in parts of Canada and Europe.

Users reportedly had difficulty logging into their account as well as trouble connecting to the service.

Disgruntled users naturally took to Twitter to vent their frustrations.




It is still unclear what caused the issues.
